N3RD Street is defined more by an identity and a set of values than a geography. It’s a nickname for a segment of North 3rd Street in Philadelphia between Market Street and Girard Avenue (spanning across the neighborhoods of Old City and Northern Liberties), and its surrounding community that is home to a concentration of "nerdy" companies and spaces.
An official resolution recognizing N3RD Street was adopted by Philadelphia's city council on March 20, 2014. Starting April 10, 2014, the city installed special street signs along the corridor denoting its nickname, similar to the neighborhood-specific signs in Chinatown and the Gayborhood.
The official city naming ceremony took place on April 11, 2014, at Liberty Lands Park. Check out the legislation here.
