Old City Real Estate

Not only is Old City the epicenter of U.S. political history -- home to the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Elfreth’s Alley, Benjamin Franklin’s House, the Betsy Ross House and so much more -- but it is also one of the hottest and trendiest places in Center City. Old City is known for its historical destinations, but also for its desirable bars, clubs, restaurants and the city’s niche, ‘First Friday.’ ‘First Friday’ happens on the first Friday of every month and is a free opportunity to gather in a social setting and witness some of the artistic talents of Philly’s local artists. There is nothing suburban about Old City, except maybe the view from the Delaware River. It is close to I-95 and Columbus Boulevard and is very convenient to public transportation.
