Offering a unique blend of the historic and the cosmopolitan, Queen Village exudes throwback charm while epitomizing 21st century urban living. Part Society Hill and part Park Slope, it’s one of Philadelphia’s oldest neighborhoods: close-knit, welcoming, and easy to get around, with lovely 18th and 19th century brick rowhomes and modern townhouses lining narrow, tree-canopied streets and an eclectic mix of small retailers, restaurants and hip coffee shops providing a lively neighborhood energy day and night.
With its prime waterfront location and easy access to I-95 and commuter thoroughfares, Queen Village’s location is another key to its charm. Genteel Society Hill and the South Street commercial corridor are just a short walk away, as is world-famous Fabric Row—the oldest fabric row in the country—and the vibrant Italian Market, two of Philadelphia’s most storied shopping areas.
Public resources are also plentiful, from highly-ranked schools (William M. Meredith) to outstanding community spaces such as Mario Lanza Park, a lovingly-maintained meeting place for families, civic groups and dog lovers.
