Near Chinatown, Callowhill is a popular district for loft-style housing in converted factories and mills. While Callowhill was a busy neighborhood in pre-Revolutionary America, today it is mainly known as the former home of Monopoly's Reading Railroad. Stop by and see who's playing at Union Transfer, a former railroad building-turned-concert hall, then head over to the Prohibition Taproom for some quality drafts and beer-battered green beans.
