Lincoln Drive ’round these parts is notoriously tetchy. No worries, just follow Kelly to Midvale, which takes you straight up to Henry & Philadelphia University. Let our obnoxious red arrows lead the way!
Stay left heading into East Falls.
There’ll be another sign — stay left.
Continue through the curve…
And then get over in your RIGHT for KELLY DRIVE.
This part’s a little tricky cause you’ve been in the left all this time and suddenly that lane peels off to Ridge Ave. Don’t do that — go RIGHT for KELLY DRIVE.
Once you’re on Kelly, you’ll drive maybe a half mile up the river.
Midvale Avenue comes up right after the Bridge, so keep your eyes out.
Turning here, the next light at the corner is Midvale & Ridge — the “epi-center” of our business corridor and, some would argue, our neighborhood’s historic heart.
Midvale winds uphill, passed our public school & library, to McMichael Park at Henry Avenue. For Philadelphia University’s campus, turn LEFT (it’s a few blocks up). Or hang a left at Vaux for a short-cut to Ravenhill.
A left at Ridge here will take you towards Roxborough and Manayunk, and also to on-ramps for City Ave and 76.
A right at Ridge here leads to Laurel Hill, East Falls Gym, and the “Mills” section of East Falls.
If you park here and get out of your car, you’ll find a really cool little corner of Philadelphia, totally worth exploring.
