If you feel like walking, 7th and South is about 6 blocks south and 3 blocks east. If you dont feel up to the 9 blocks or so of walking, you can walk to 8th street (or take the El, but is it worth it for 2 blocks?) and hop on the 47 Bus and get off at 8th and South Sts.

Septa from Trenton to Market EAst station: $7 ($14 round trip)
