"Busy busy main thoroughfare"

City Line Avenue runs southwest along the city's western boundary, from the Schuykill River til it becomes Township Line Road somewhere below Haverford Ave. Along most of it, it's extremely built up, there are seemingly endless shopping areas. At the start there are large apartment buildings, like Presidential City, office buildings, along with things like a TGIFridays, and a relatively new Target shopping area. Two of the city's major TV stations are also located on City Line, right across the street from one another, WPVI - Channel 6, and WCAU - Channel 10 are both at Monument Rd and City Line. Further along is a major local college, St. Joseph's University. Almost any kind of shopping or dining can be found along this stretch of road. Traffic can be backed up during rush hours, in both directions.

"Nice place for a family stay"

A major street in Philadelphia is the City Avenue. It is also sometimes called City line avenue and begins from the E Township line road. The only thing I enjoyed at this street were the food joints, they are just lovely. The one's I would surely love to visit again are the Dunkin' Donuts and Mc Donald's. In shopping, you will find numerous shoe stores and some clothing outlets. There is an educational development called Saint Joseph's University located here.
