Cathy Fiebach, Wynnewood
Owner, Main Point Books, Bryn Mawr
What’s so great about the Main Line: I like its convenience to Philadelphia and New York City. I’m amazed by the quality of the schools and their students, from pre-K through graduate school.
Why Main Liners make the best neighbors: They have a lot of pride in their community. You know they always have the best interests of the Main Line at heart.
Her favorite towns: I love living in Wynnewood. We can walk to Narberth, Suburban Square and the Wynnewood Shopping Center from our house, and we can be in the city in less than 20 minutes. I am also enjoying getting to know Bryn Mawr better. There seems to be a new store or restaurant opening every day. Each time the door of Main Point Books opens, someone says, “Welcome to Bryn Mawr. We’re so glad you are here.”
Coolest local event: Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The original stand grows every year, proving that kids can have a very large impact on their community and the causes they care about.
Must-do outdoor activity: My dog, Rocky, loves Rolling Hill Park in Gladwyne. When my children were younger, we loved walking to Narberth’s playground.
The last thing she bought: A cupcake from N’Dulge in Bryn Mawr and a very soft sweater at Skirt.
The last thing she ate that she loved: The BLTA (bacon, lettuce, tomato, avocado) from HotHouse Coffee in Bryn Mawr and a crêpe from Main Line Bistro.
Lancaster Avenue or the R5? Lancaster Avenue is great if you have the time to stop at the many appealing towns along the way. I can also give friends from Penn directions directly from the university to my house—pretty cool!
Best-kept secret spot: Chanticleer is a great escape, yet so close to home.
Most exciting local rumor from the past year: That the owners of Melograno were opening a restaurant in Bryn Mawr—and it’s true!
If I didn’t live here, I’d live in: New York City. But I have no plans to move.
Main Point Books’ grand opening is Sept. 7.
