Today, it runs from the Delaware River one way westbound through Old City, where landmarks include the Arch Street Friends Meeting House, the Betsy Ross House, Girard Fountain Park, the U.S. Mint, and Christ Church Burial Ground. It crosses Independence Mall at 5th and 6th Streets, and traverses Philadelphia's Chinatown (Philadelphia) neighborhood. The tourist areas around Logan Square and the museum district are just north of Arch Street, which ends just east of the Schuylkill River at 23rd Street. West of the river, there is a block of Arch Street between 30th Street Station and Cira Centre. Arch Street also runs from 49th Street to 63rd Street, but one way eastbound.
