Default What is the best street in philly?

HI,

i Spent a few hours sunday on Richmond and Northern Liberties, and I enjoyed the area, especially on Oxford across THompson street


Is there any other area that is as nice and those 2 areas?

What would you select as the best area or best street in terms of safety, beauty, cleaness, with growth potentials?


thank you

That's a rather subjective question that may potentially have you running around much of the city.

Some of my favorite blocks are on Delancey Street: between 8th and 10th in Washington Square West as well as around 20th in Rittenhouse Square. I'm also fond of the 4500 block of Pine in University City.

Of course, the properties on these blocks are very expensive so the growth potential has probably already been mostly realized. As far as safety goes, some people have concerns about UC as a whole but the block I referenced would be among the most sought after.

The 1700, 1800 and 1900 block of Delancey Pl (south of Rittenhouse Square, all single family houses) are generely acknowledged to be the most expensive and prestigious in the city.

Tone,
Delancey St. does not run between 8th and 10th Sts. You may be thinking of Clinton St. in that area, which is indeed gorgeous. Some of the large townhouses on those blocks are being divided into condos, but it's still fairly expensive real estate.

Ah, you're probably right. My memory may be a bit fuzzy on that. Thanks for the correction!
