Immortalized in LyricsSouth Street

in Immortalized in Lyrics

South Street is Philadelphia's hip strip and trendy melting pot. Here you'll find a many-splendored promenade alive with way-kewl boutiques, eccentric shops, singular restaurants, bars, night clubs and cafes — and where the people-watching is as fun as the window-shopping. Aging hippies, the fashionably unfashionable, tongue-piercers, spike-haired skateboarders, and even nuclear families commingle comfortably on this eclectic and electric swath.

In Paul Simon's song "American Tune" the Statue of Liberty in New York City takes on a different symbolic meaning; that of despair rather than hope.
