Great ambiance, like you stepped back in time...but go early!. We missed the museum, but still walked the Alley, delightfully painted up, with flowers planted everywhere. One lady who lived there or was visiting someone, took the time to take a couple of pictures of the 3 of us, and then gave us a couple of excellent recommendations for food-- Konak's on Vine St (great turkish food, reasonable prices, must try the mini dessert sampler platter) also Franklin's Fountain for great icecream! We had a great time.
The oldest street in the oldest part of Old City..
This tiny, charming alley remains largely residential, despite being the oldest continuously inhabited street in America. The earliest of the tall, narrow brick dwellings--in a Georgian style known locally as "trinity"--were built around 1720. The street is named for Jeremiah Elfreth, a land speculator and blacksmith, who built and rented out many of the houses. Today, two of them, the Mantua Maker's House and the Windsor Chair Maker's House, are open to the public. The first is available for tours, the second operates as a gift shop.
