I've talked about the Race Street Pier on here before, but this time I actually went there myself. Overall the design, from the diagonal wood pattern floor to the sleek benches, is quite nice. I walked down during a lunch break and was surprised to find it completely empty, I mean, I know it's cold out, but c'mon people(!).
Actually, what I liked even more than the pier was the River>> City << signs under the bridge on Race Street. I thought they were fun and made the underside of a bridge, well, not look like the underside of most Philadelphia bridges, so what I'm saying is that it wasn't scary to walk under.
Check it out sometime, it's pretty nice.
 For those that may not be familiar, this is the Benjamin Franklin Bridge that spans over the Delaware River from Philadelphia to Camden, NJ.
