Manayunk is a section of Philadelphia known for it's fine restaurants and unique shops. It is located northwest of Center City Philadelphia along the Schuylkill River.

Manayunk received its name from the Lenape Indian word "manaiung," meaning, "where we go to drink." The availability of water drew people to the area then, and it still does today. Manayunk has one of the highest concentrations of drinking establishments in the city. You could not throw a stone without hitting a bar or restaurant.

Manayunk is also the site of the "Wall". The wall is an especially difficult leg of the First Union US Pro and Liberty Cup bike race.
