About the neighbourhood
Philly has about 110 neighborhoods -- Money Magazine deemed Mt Airy the 'best neighborhood' in Philadelphia. Harvard has studied its success, Oprah's magazine did a feature on why this is such an exceptional neighborhood too. It is leafy, with beautiful architecture and an engaged community. 15-18 minutes to downtown. We're three blocks to Carpenter Woods, a fingerling of the Wissahickon Valley and Fairmount Park, and home of the city's first bird sanctuary. Wikipedia calls Mt Airy a 'PhD ghetto'. Walkable too.
Getting around
Ample free parking here. We're close to downtown Philly by car or train (which we use like a subway). My building is in the epicenter of 'Mt Airy Village', -- a heart of this neighborhood ... directly across the street from the brilliantly stocked food co-op, the Nesting House (for young families), High Point Cafe and Big Blue Marble bookstore -- plus the WPM (words per minute) Typewriter Shop is right downstairs. We're within two or three miles of many local-chef restaurants, cobblestoned Germantown Avenue, Chestnut Hill, a golf course, collectible kitchenware shop, playground, woods and more.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: PHL: 25.0 km
