Overview of Center City East, Philadelphia

If you choose to rent a Center City East apartment, you’ll find yourself in good company. This part of Philadelphia is the city’s most densely populated district. It’s also busy with colorful, active neighborhoods—some so small you could practically trip over them. Living in this part of town may be a bit crowded, but that’s old school city living for you. In exchange for the reduced elbowroom, you’ll live amidst world-class culture and seriously impressive Americana. Seems like a fair trade!

Center City East is the historic heart of Philly, where William Penn and the Quakers first settled. If you want to relive the American Revolution, join the tourists visiting Independence National Historical Park. That’s only part of this district’s attraction. Elfreth’s Alley is one of the oldest continuously inhabited streets in the United States. You can tip your hat to the Liberty Bell and raise a flag to Betsy Ross’s house, all from a Center City East apartment.

You won’t want for much if you choose to live in Center City East. There’s plentiful shopping in Market East, one of the city’s retail hubs. Bars and restaurants are also in generous supply.
