2nd Street station (signed as 2nd Street–Penn's Landing–Old City) is a subway station on the Market-Frankford Line, beneath the corner of 2nd Street and Market Street in Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Eastbound trains heading towards Northeast Philadelphia turn north after departing this station and begin to run along Front Street and, ultimately, Frankford and Kensington Avenues for the remainder of the line. It is the easternmost stop in central Philadelphia and the last subterranean stop for eastbound trains.

The station serves the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia, with station signs originally reading "Olde City". The 'e' has been covered on the signs with obvious blue stickers.[1] Sights accessible via this station include Penn's Landing and Old City bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and shops.

All peak rush hour trains stop here.
