Philadelphia, in Greek meaning “The City of Brotherly Love”, is not only America’s 5th most populous city but it is also considered to be one of the most affordable. Typical homes in Philadelphia are historic colonial and Federal-style brick row homes.

Even though Philadelphia is known for its historic homes, in recent years, the city has been inviting well-known architects and real estate moguls to refurbish, renovate and construct new, yet affordable, residential spaces with modern conveniences.

The area that is now known as Northern Liberties was first inhabited by the Lenni Lanape Indians, who were the main Native American tribe roaming the region. After William Penn settled in 1682, he split Philadelphia into two major regions; “The City”, which is Center City today, and “The Liberties”, now known as Northern Liberties.

It wasn’t until 1791 that Northern Liberties gained its independence and was able to regulate its own streets, buildings and boundaries. It then became a thriving manufacturing community and quickly became home to some of the cities best mills, breweries, iron works and other factories. This attracted many artisan Europeans who flocked to the area during the 19th and 20th centuries. Germans, Romanians and Slovak people came to Northern Liberties and established the Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Church and the St. Agnes Slovak Roman Catholic Church, two of the area’s most iconic landmarks.

Northern Liberties is a quaint community offering the convenience and fun of an urban lifestyle. It attracts a culturally diverse crowd of young professionals, artists and students due to its proximity to Center City, its fair price tag, and its vibrant culture. Northern Liberties is home to the Yards Brewery, a number of clothing boutiques, and eclectic restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining some of which only serve local produce and meats. This district has become a hot bed for the arts, houses a myriad of community activities and is home to a lively and entertaining nightlife. Housing consists primarily of row homes with an eclectic mix of Italian architecture, Greek revival, and Federal style buildings. Due to the area’s increasing popularity, many newer apartment buildings and condominiums are being developed.

Northern Liberties is just north of the Old City district, making access into Center City easy. Northern Liberties has access to SEPTA’s Market-Frankford El line with stops at Spring Garden and Girard. There is also the Girard Avenue trolley, which allows for transportation at the northern end of the district. Access to the 57 bus on 4th street lets residence travel south into Center City and beyond, and can be taken back north on 3rd street.
