Anchored by a handsome park and served by a thriving business district, Rittenhouse Square and Graduate Hospital neighborhoods are located just west of Broad Street.
Rittenhouse is the ultimate Victorian green space, re-designed in the early 20th century to emulate a Parisian garden. Today, it's an urban oasis, gathering place and year-round market for this bustling neighborhood. Its reputation as a tony address began in the mid-1800s and continues to this day. Art Deco and contemporary high-rises overlook the park, lined with outdoor cafe seating, chic shopping and places to see and be seen! Make time for a stroll down romantic Delancey Place with someone special.
The quieter Graduate Hospital neighborhood is just to the south of Rittenhouse. First settled in the late 1800s and named for its former landmark institution, today you'll find 19th and 20th century rowhouses are adjacent to new townhouses. It has a toned-down Center City ambiance, with a distinctly neighborhood feel. There's a burgeoning crafts scene here, especially along South St., and plenty of local bars, pubs and restaurants. One of many neighborhood events is the annual Odunde Festival, a week-long celebration of African culture with food, vendors and dancing in the street! Come find your place is welcoming urban mosaic.
From lofty pied-a-terres to generously-sized townhouses, Center City West offers a wide range of possibilities. More interested in newer construction? Graduate Hospital might be just the place.
