46th and Market
Philadelphia

46th Street is the Easternmost station on the elevated section of the Market Street Subway/Elevated Line in West Philadelphia.  Rebuilt between 1999 and 2009, the new Market Street El is far less gloomy underneath than the old one was.

The little building on South 46th Street with the satellite dish on top is the former WFIL TV studio where the iconic '50s teen-dance show American Bandstand was taped.

The grand Greco-Roman-Georgian building on North 46th Street is the long abandoned 1928 headquarters of the Provident Mutual Life Insurance Company of Philadelphia.

That's right, North 46th Street is a block West of South 46th Street -- not an uncommon situation in the Philadlephia area.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
