Old city offers new beginnings

 

I made a quick unexpected trip this week  to Reading Pennsylvania, located about one hour west of Philadelphia.   For many years the city has gone through changes from it’s early German influence to being a welcoming community of cultural diversity today.  With a full agenda on my three day visit I did squeeze in a break to get few photos, working around the rain, traffic and school buses.  Most folks will recognize the name from the “Reading Railroad” on the Monopoly game board.

 

Like its neighboring cities of Philadelphia and Baltimore the city favors a variety of styles of “row houses”.

 

As you make your way through the narrow one way streets there are reminders of the thriving past history of this city.

 

 

 

After admiring this very old city you may as well enjoy a cold beer from America’s oldest brewery with a soft pretzel, ring bologna, and maybe a slice of tomato pie…..

Happy travels 🙂 much  to see in the USA when you exit the interstates….
