The area is one of the oldest in the city because it is along the Delaware River which was one of the world?s most active ports. There was a large and varied immigrant community associated with work at the port and enterprises that were related to port activities. Since the 1970?s the neighborhood has become gentrified but is still probably more diverse than any in the city. The residents are: students, teachers, retired people, office workers, service workers, hospital staff, contractors, professionals, artists, etc and there is a great racial, ethnic, and economic mix of residents. The architecture is as diverse as the population with everything from early 18th century to ranch homes and mansions. Active and powerful community association. The house is located very near many restaurants and coffeehouses as well as the Italian, Mexican, and Asian market areas. There are about 25 movie screens within a fifteen minute walk?about half showing films suitable for adults. We are a few blocks from the river and Penn?s Landing where there are many activities---ice skating, festivals, outdoor concerts, tall-ship watching. Easy public transportation access to center city shopping, museums, offices, hospitals---but easy walking too. Historic area 10 minutes walk away. A half dozen bookstores near and the new location of the FringeArts Festival. Several small sitdown or dogwalking parks closeby. Farmers markets from midspring till the fall and various nearby festivals all year long. One block from great viewing of July4 and New years fireworks along the river. Fleisher Art School and Settlement Music school within ½ mile. Many and varied churches, temples, and synagogues in area. Meredith is a highly regarded public school and there are a number of fine private schools in the area. South street constantly active. And there are always folks out walking somewhere.
