“Walking the Eraserhood” represents an ongoing street-level exploration of the Callowhill district and surrounding environs, a sort of virtual walking tour of the neighborhood.

On the northeast corner of this intersection is the former site of the Colonial Revival style Willys-Overland Company building, demolished in 2012, after only two years dedicated as part of CIHD, to make way for a center for the Pennsylvania Ballet. Attached to this lot, just to the north of the Willys-Overland site, stands the 1911 US. Tire Company Building, slated to be occupied by Pennsylvania Ballet as part of the same complex. The southeast corner still contains the Albert Kahn designed Packard Motor Company Building, currently filled with luxury apartments.
