Philadelphia PA Cityscape

Overview of North Philadelphia

Start exploring North Philadelphia and you’ll discover this swath of the city actually contains a range of neighborhoods and rentals. North Philadelphia apartments include those in Fairhill, Fairmount, Fishtown, Francisville, Franklinville, Glenwood, Hartranft, Northern Liberties, Poplar, Sharswood, Strawberry Mansion, Yorktown, and other areas.

The northern section of the city was annexed in 1854. The suburban streets of that time gradually morphed into a home for a tide of immigrant laborers. As the Industrial Era boomed, so did North Philly, bringing workers and factories. The Great Depression took a heavy toll, however, and the district’s jazz scene could not compensate for low incomes. Today, North Philadelphia apartments most often fall into concentrated ethnic communities, many struggling to regain their footing in a rough economy.

North Philadelphia Lifestyle and Entertainment

North Philadelphia neighborhood Fairmount is coming up quickly. There you’ll find one of the finest art collections in the world, plus bike and running baths. Northern Liberties, or NoLib to locals, offers up trendy shops, bars, and eateries. Johnny Brenda’s is a good club in Fishtown and you can gallery hop around there as well. In general, there’s more happening the closer you stick to Center City.

North Philadelphia Info and the Rental Market

North Philadelphia rentals include new buildings and old gems. Among the rowhouses you’ll find artists lofts, condos, and newer apartments. As you get closer to Center City, the neighborhoods show more signs of gentrification. A place in Fishtown will rent for an average of $1,478 a month, for example. Compare that to apartments in Fairhill, averaging just $660 a month.

To get into Center City from a North Philadelphia apartment, you’ll either take a quick drive down Broad Street or jump on SEPTA Regional Rail. This is not the most convenient area to commute from.
