As you can imagine, I was ecstatic when I heard the news! The American Planning Association has named Philadelphia not once, but TWICE on their list of 2008’s Great Places in America!
Society Hill was named one of the top 10 Great neighborhoods! And why wouldn’t it? Revolutionary-era townhouses, wonderful expanses of greenery and a variety of high-rise and brownstone styled condominiums highlight this beautiful neighborhood. Society Hill Towers, the Hopkinson House, Independence Place, and Abbott Square are the major high rise buildings in this neighborhood. Quaint cobblestone streets and the historic feel of the area provide quite a draw for those looking to buy real estate in Center City.
Broad Street, also known as The Avenue of The Arts, was named in the top ten of America’s Greatest Streets! Condominiums such as the Symphony House and The Marine Club line this beautiful Street which is home to the traditional Mummers Parade every New Year’s Day. There are also many attractions including The Broad Street Theater and The Shops at The Bellevue that really bring this Street to life!
