The commingling of likeminded residents and entrepreneurs begat a quirky network of bars, restaurants and boutiques within neighborhood limits (Girard Avenue and Callowhill Street north and south, the Delaware River and Sixth Street east and west). Already a hotbed of enviro-friendly construction, NoLibs' value was further boosted by the additions of Liberties Walk and the Piazza at Schmidts, ambitious mixed-use complexes that reimagined overlooked industrial bones. Long established as a force, NoLibs has become an economic and cultural influence on the neighborhoods around it.
