A section of the city of Philadelphia that seems not to be governed by law but rather local custom, especially south of Washington Avenue.
Newly arrived South Philly resident: "Why does everyone have their cars parked in the middle of Broad Street?"

Grizzled South Philly veteran: "This is South Philly. If you don't like it, get the fuck out of here. Yo, hit the deck, I think just heard a gunshot."

Driving through several consecutive stoptional intersections on a street in South Philly.

I drove from Gray's Ferry to Pennsport the other night, but I wanted to grab a hoagie on the way, so I did the South Philly Slide down Dickinson.
