MISSION

Friends of the Avenue of the Arts’ goal is to encourage economic development and enhance the beautification of both North and South Broad Streets through social and networking events that engage our Residents who live and work on the Avenue

A RICH HISTORY

For more than a century, Broad Street has been the central artery of Philadelphia.  A hub of commerce, a source of pride, a destination for millions Broad Street’s transformation into the Avenue of the Arts has reinforced it as a hub of commerce – but it’s become so much more. Today, it’s a source of pride for the region, a destination for arts patrons and food enthusiasts, a fast-growing location for people to reside, and a signature street where the region celebrates its champions and welcomes the New Year. The Avenue has attracted 2 million patrons and generates approximately $500 million annually from taxes and di- rect spending by organizations and individuals. In 2008, it was named one of America’s “Great Streets,” by the American Planning Association.
