It's hard to know what to call the wonderful, welcoming, and often edgy Painted Bride Art Center, located near the entrance to the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. This spot set the trend of cultural activity in Old City starting 36 years ago. It's an art gallery catering to contemporary -- okay, more left-wing -- tastes, but it also hosts folk, electronic, and world music, plus Philadelphia's longest running jazz series, dance, and theater events.
