I wouldn't describe any part of Center City as being a Jewish neighborhood anymore. There used to be a lot of Jews in the vicinity of South Street but they're long gone.

There are some areas with a lot of Eastern European Jewish immigrants in the Northeast. That's probably the closest you're going to get.

Most Jewish neighborhoods migrated to the suburbs. The Main Line and Cheltenham both have a big Jewish presence.

Center city is very diverse and has people of all ethniticities. I'm Jewish and live in a condo, there are many other Jewish people here and in other condo's in Center City as well.

The poster asked where the Jewish neighborhoods are. A Jewish neighborhood is a neighborhood that's mostly Jewish, not a diverse neighborhood that has people of all ethnicities.

There was a really interesting article a couple months back in Philly mag which discussed the large incoming population of Orthodox Jews in Bala Cynwyd and, I believe, Wynnewood. According to the article, some of the secular Jews are not happy about it - so in any case, it sounds as though these two neighborhoods have a sizeable Jewish population.

i wouldnt say it is a great place because the so called multiculturalist cult really has worked to divide people by race and ethnicity creates great racial and economic schisms in this City.

Its a sad scene to see in a so called democrat run city that ghettos still abound, and racism is in full effect--i thought dems are open minded--NOT!!

Elkins Park is a good Jewish neighborhood outside the city.
