QUEEN VILLAGE

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY AND LOCATION

Queen Village is a residential neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that lies along the eastern edge of the city, immediately south of Center City. It shares boundaries with Society Hill to the north, Bella Vista to the west and Pennsport to the south. Historically, the area is part of old Southwark, Philadelphia’s first suburb, which was incorporated into the city in 1856 and remains the city’s oldest residential neighborhood. Street boundaries are the south side of Lombard Street to the north side of Washington Avenue, the Delaware River to 6th Street, encompassing two principal commercial corridors, South Street and Fabric Row on 4th Street.

Queen Village was known for its large Irish immigrant population.

Though it’s populated by some of the oldest residences in Philadelphia, Queen Village simmers with modern energy, making it an ideal neighborhood for visitors who love to keep their fashion, food and fun low-key and local.

A homey, welcoming tangle of narrow blocks, pert architecture and mature trees, the area was founded as a working-class suburb, but was eventually folded into the city proper in the mid-1800s. This unique history, coupled with its prime waterfront location and the old-time aesthetic charm it shares with neighboring Society Hill, helps Queen Village stand out as one of Philly’s most stable and stirring pockets of city life.

The longest-established neighborhood in this close-knit slice of Philly, Queen Village is extremely accessible and navigable by foot and bicycle, a perk not lost on residents who are particular about dining, drinking and shopping close to home.

PLACES TO VISIT AND GETTING AROUND

Fashion Row
This stretch of 4th Street is widely known for its proliferation of fabric shops and stores, but it also features some of the area’s top shopping and dining.

Second Street/Headhouse Square
Ever so slightly removed from Fabric Row, Queen Village’s chunk of Second Street features public green space and well-loved pubs and cafes to the south. To the north, it empties into Headhouse Square, a beautiful historic open space home to popular bars and restaurants and Philly’s premier weekend farmers market.

Getting Around

Multiple SEPTA bus routes shuttle between the neighborhood, both from Center City and from the opposite side of Washington Avenue, Queen Village’s southern border. The tightly packed residential streets, featuring a multitude of street-level private garages, make parking a challenge, especially at night, but motorists planning shorter-term visits can take advantage of multiple lots along Front Street.

There are some great restaurants in this neighborhood that you visit:

Some of them are: Isot, Kanella South, Dmitri’s, Golden Triangle, Square Pie , Kennett, Imli Kitchen, Famous 4th Street
