Bala Cynwyd and Merion

This is where the Main Line begins. Bounded by City Avenue and the Schuylkill River, Bala Cynwyd flows south and west into Merion to form seamless neighborhoods and commercial districts. The two areas are home to major radio and TV broadcast sites, the Barnes Foundation and its acclaimed art collection, the former General Wayne Inn, the historic Merion Friends Meetinghouse, landmark West Laurel Cemetery, a portion of the St. Joseph’s University campus and, of course, legendary delis Hymie’s and Murray’s.
