West Philadelphia

Leafy, colorful Powelton Village (zip code 19104) is one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful best-kept secrets. The neighborhood is characterized by its unmistakable mix of stately mansions, porch front Victorians and spacious row homes. In fact, the area features so many incredibly preserved examples of Victorian architecture that a number of individual residences, are protected by the National Register of Historic Places. Because of its close proximity to Drexel University, the residents of Powelton Village are a vibrant mix of academics, artists and long time homeowners.

University City (zip codes 19104, 19143) is the bustling heart of West Philadelphia and the academic and health science mecca of the entire region. University City is so named due to the presence of two of the largest and most influential institutions in town: the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University. It’s bordered by University Avenue to the south, Market Street to the north, 30th Street to the east and 38th Street westward. Residents and visitors of this “melting pot” will discover a diverse palette of people, food arts and culture.

West of University of City you will find the spacious historical residences, charming tree canopies and charm of Spruce Hill (zip codes 19104, 19143, 19139).  The neighborhood is geographically defined by the north-south boundaries of Market Street and Woodland Avenue and 38th and 46th streets as its east and west boundaries. Baltimore Avenue is the backbone of this neighborhood and the businesses along the Baltimore Avenue corridor are reflective of the diversity of the neighborhood. Residents of Spruce Hill include African, Asian and Middle Eastern families young and old, as well as a fast-growing community of Muslim residents and small business owners clustered around 44th and Walnut.  Spruce Hill is also home to Clark Park, perhaps the best-known public green space in this portion of West Philadelphia. Clark Park serves as a communal space for neighborhood residents to sled during the winter months and view open air productions of Shakespeare during the summer months.

Moving further west, you will find a unique slice of West Philadelphia, Cedar Park (zip code 19143). Cedar Park is known both for its overtly Bohemian vibe and associated cultural diversity. It spans the space between 46th and 52nd Streets to the east and west and sealed north and south by Larchwood Street and Kingsessing Avenue. The neighborhood is primarily residential, but the city’s restaurant, arts and music scenes are now establishing prominent footholds here. Cedar Park is also home to small green spaces, like Cedar Park  at 50th and Baltimore Avenue, which is the neighborhoods namesake. 

Like the nearby suburban community of Wynnewood, Wynnefield (zip code 19131) takes its name from William Penn's physician, Thomas Wynne, who built his home "Wynnestay" at 52nd Street and Woodbine Avenue in 1690. The Wynnefield neighborhood is known for its many beautiful single homes, its active community organization and its racial diversity. Its borders are 53rd Street at Jefferson to the south, Philadelphia's Fairmount Park to the east, City Avenue (commonly referred to as "City Line") to the north and the Amtrak Main Line tracks to the west. This neighborhood is easily accessible to Center City and the adjacent suburban Main Line. It is lso home to St. Joseph’s University.

The name Overbrook (zip code 19151) is commonly used to refer both to a specific neighborhood and a larger area of northwestern West Philadelphia that includes four neighborhoods: Overbrook, Overbrook Farms, Morris Park and Overbrook Park. The main boundaries for the Overbrook neighborhood are North 63rd Street to the west, Lansdowne Avenue to the south, and the SEPTA regional rail tracks to the northeast. A very small portion of Woodbine Avenue between North 63rd Street and the SEPTA regional rail tracks bounds Overbrook to the north while a very small portion of North 52nd Street between Lansdowne Avenue and the SEPTA regional rail tracks bounds Overbrook to the south. The dominant housing type is the row house, present in a wide variety of styles. However, Overbrook is also home to semidetached twin homes,stately single family residences and a few apartment complexes.
