Festivals and SEPTA changes: What to expect with travel this weekend
Your weekend roundup of Philly travel and transit
Welcome back to our weekend transit roundup, where we look at all the events, sports, closures, and SEPTA changes that are likely to affect your travel and transit this weekend. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments. It’s light this week—there’s almost nothing going on by the stadiums—but watch out for festivals and SEPTA transportation changes.
Events: festivals and music
The Juneteenth Music Festival is coming to Old City this weekend, starting on Friday from 2 to 9 p.m. at Penns Landing. It continues into Saturday with a parade that kicks off at 15th and JFK at noon. The parade continues down Market to Penns Landing.
Also, the Manayunk Arts Festival is happening on Saturday and Sunday around Ridge Avenue and Domino Lane, starting at 11 a.m. and going until 6 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday. Check it out if you love community art, but try to avoid the area if you want to get around via car. The festival is expecting thousands in attendance.
SEPTA: transportation changes
Friday through Sunday, expect to board the opposite side of the tracks on the Market Frankford Line, specifically at stations 15th, 13th, 11th, and 8th street. Opposite side boarding will start at 8:30 p.m. each day this weekend and go until the end of the service day.
Also, because of Amtrak construction, there will be no trains at the Chestnut Hill West station on Saturday and Sunday. Plan accordingly.

Magical home on a Queen Village alley lists for $275K
It’s a two-bedroom place
A funky little Queen Village home, with almost every room on its own floor, just dropped on the market for $275,000.
The two-bed home sits off a quiet, pedestrian-only alleyway. The bright green front door opens into a first floor room, with a brick fireplace and enough space to spread out. Outside is the private patio and downstairs is the kitchen, which has the lower level entirely to itself and offers a fair amount of counter space.
Head back up the stairs to the second floor, which has the first bedroom (or office), while the third floor holds the master bedroom. The beauty of this home is in the design, which is almost entirely vertical—every room has its own floor.

SEPTA considering bus network redesign with faster routes
A report outlined the ways SEPTA could boost bus ridership
Facing rapidly declining ridership on its buses, SEPTA officials published a report Thursday outlining a way to overhaul the bus system and bring the riders back.
The list includes ideas like allowing all-door boarding, spacing out stops, and cutting back on excess rush hour buses.
The report is the result of a years worth of work by private firm, Jarrett Walker and Associates, which has helped other cities improve their transportation systems. SEPTA brought in the firm last year after noticing their bus ridership has declined by 17 percent in the last five years.
“Recent declines in ridership in the context of a growing and densifying city strongly suggest that the network is not meeting the needs of today’s city,” the firm wrote in the report.
Over the course of the past six months, Jarrett Walker and Associates examined each route in the system, speaking with riders about the bus network’s biggest drawbacks. While they concluded that it’s difficult to point to one culprit specifically, the firm wrote that lower gas prices and the increase of ride share programs likely play a part in the ridership decline.
However, part of the problem falls on SEPTA’s shoulders, too. In their study, the firm identified ways the bus network has been less than efficient in terms of bus frequency.
“Most of the city is covered by a grid pattern of lines. Increasing all of these lines to run more frequently all day would make it easy to go from anywhere to anywhere in this area with a simple L-shaped trip,” the firm said, as just one idea to improve ridership.
They also examined ways SEPTA could speed up its existing buses, like getting rid of duplicative routes—the study said that 10 percent of bus lines travel the same route as another bus—and cutting back on the number of buses that run during rush hour.
Even some of the bus stops pose a problem, the report found. Many bus stops are 500 feet away from each other, meaning that one bus could be stopping almost every block along their route. Increasing the stops to 1000 to 1,500 feet apart could mean a two percent speed increase, the report said.
Other ideas detailed in the report wouldn’t affect the way buses travel, but could still make the system more accessible to riders, like getting rid of the bus transfer fee, making the system maps more legible, and allowing boarding on all of the bus doors.
Along with suggestions for SEPTA, the group also urged the city to form policies that could cut down on congestion and improve the transit system, stressing that the burden is not SEPTA’s alone.
A representative from SEPTA was not immediately available Thursday afternoon to discuss how the transportation authority plans to use the report.

Elkins Park home has a touch of rustic charm for $400K
It has four beds and two full baths
Just north of Philly, tucked into a cozy Elkins Park street, is this 1915-built charmer, which just dropped on the market for $399,900.
The home, which has four beds and two and a half baths, was completely remodeled just a few years ago, in 2015. It opens into a hall with a wooden staircase and a living room off to the side.
However, the real draw of the first floor, is the kitchen, which sits off to the other side of the staircase and features recycled barn beams in the ceiling and an exposed brick wall with a built-in granite shelf. Between the warm lighting, the drawers tucked into the brick, and a wooden beam doorway, the kitchen has a lot of rustic charm.
Find more of that feel upstairs, with a worn wood barn door in front of the second floor bathroom. The bedrooms are spaced between the second, third and fourth floors, and have great views of the outdoors and patio below.
The home was last listed in 2015 for $345,000, but has since bumped up slightly in price.

The Main Line's 10 most expensive homes for sale
From a Gilded Age estate to a mansion with an indoor basketball court
Editor’s note: This article was last published in January 2018 and has since been updated with the most recent information.
Here at Curbed Philly, we keep a very close eye on the real estate market within Philadelphia city limits. And sure, there are some big blockbuster listings that are truly something else. But if you're in the market for mega-mansions with 8-digit price tags, the Main Line is where to look.
This area consists of about 20 towns northwest of Philadelphia that were built along the main line of the Pennsylvania railroad during the 19th century. Today, the affluent communities are known for their schools for being some of the wealthiest zip codes in the nation.
Here, we've scoured the most current real estate listings in Main Line zip codes to find the 10 most expensive homes for sale, from a Gladwyne mansion with ties to the Campbell Soup family to the priciest property sitting on 32 acres.
Since the last update of this map in January 2018, there have been some big-time price cuts, new additions, and some mansions that have been knocked off the list.
The homes are listed in order from most to least expensive.
