Summary

Walking Philadelphia, by award-winning journalist Natalie Pompilio, is the only guide to the city that will make you feel like you’re being led by your smartest, closest, funniest friend. The tours not only include all of the important historic facts and figures, but Natalie also shares behind-the-scenes stories and tidbits that you’ll later rush to tell others. It’s recommended for locals as well as tourists, promising something for everyone.

Author Biography

A proud Jersey girl at heart, Natalie Pompilio has embraced almost everything Philadelphia. (She’ll never give up her New York sports teams, though!) She loves soft pretzels with mustard, cobblestone streets, her row house home and neighbors, streets so narrow a car can’t pass, the hammocks at Spruce Street Harbor Park, and the singing fountain on Passyunk Avenue. Her favorite way to travel the city is using the Indego bike share. Inspired by muralist Isaiah Zagar, she has completed multiple mosaics in her neighborhood with the blessing of property owners.

She loves reading above most things and is a frequent visitor to the Charles Santoro branch of the Philadelphia Free Library system. If she’s not in Philadelphia, you’ll probably find her in New Orleans, where she rides with the Krewe of Muses during Carnival season. She’s crafty—not in the way the Beastie Boys sang about, but in the way that she could probably build you a house with a hot-glue gun.
