Committed to helping members build better software

Direction to CHOP

Location:


The Wanamaker Building
100 Penn Square
Philadelphia, PA 19102
8th Floor

Getting There:


The historic Wanamaker Building takes up the entire block bounded by Market St., S. Juniper St., Chestnut St. and S. 13th St. (google map). The main level is taken up by Macy's. It's located across the street from City Hall.

Parking is available in numerous pay-garages both in the Wanamaker building and in the immediate vicinity of City Hall. The least expensive ($8 and $9) are on Sansom Street between 11th and 12th Streets. On-street parking is available for 2 hours on Chestnut Street (south of City Hall) and portions of Filbert Street and John F Kennedy Blvd (North of City Hall), though it can be difficult to find an open space.

If you don't want to risk the cost of garage parking or the possible traffic snarl around City Hall, park away from City Hall near a subway station and take the subway in ($1.30 each way via token; $2 each way using cash at the station entrance).

The nearest rail stations are (http://www.septa.org/maps.html):
- Regional Rail: Market East and Suburban Stations
- Subway: Market-Frankford Line (13th St. station); Broad Street Line (Walnut-Locust or City Hall stations)
- PATCO: 12th/13th St. Station

Getting In:


The main building entrance is on S. Juniper St. between S. Penn Square and Market St.
- Enter the lobby doors
- go to the North Security Desk (up one level and on your left as you walk into the lobby from the street)
- present a picture ID and tell them you're there for the AgilePhilly meeting hosted by The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in room 8th Floor. You'll probably be required to sign in and will receive a temporary ID.
- take the elevators up to the 8th floor
- exit the elevator and follow the instructions posted on the glass doors at either end of the lobby.
