Overview of Rittenhouse Square

Rittenhouse Square apartments are among Philadelphia’s most desirable rentals. On the streets around the park, well-to-do types sip cappuccinos as workers escape the office and enjoy fresh air lunches. In this neighborhood, tony restaurants and stylish boutiques intermingle with bookshops and bars. Grabbing a bench in the park and soaking up the stately atmosphere is a Philadelphia tradition. Renting a Rittenhouse Square apartment—that’s the Philadelphia dream.

This neighborhood surrounds the square of the same name, one of the five original parks planned by William Penn. It was renamed in 1825 for a descendant of Philadelphia’s first paper-maker. Even before then, the neighborhood was a desirable address. Early Congressman James Harper built his townhouse alongside the park in 1811. He set the neighborhood’s tone at that time and it’s held fast since then.

Rittenhouse Square Lifestyle and Entertainment

If you’re looking for shopping, Walnut Street, starting at Rittenhouse Square and running east to Broad Street, should fit the bill. Along this stretch you’ll find upscale stores selling everything from jewelry to computers. Check out local boutiques as well. Food is also a treat in the neighborhood. You’ll find some of the best eats in Philly around the square, from French bistros to steakhouses to casual pizza places. You can hit Los Catrines & Tequilas Restaurant for a shot of mescal or enjoy artisanal gelato at Caporgiro. Rittenhouse Square itself is Philadelphia’s version of Central Park. Even though the neighborhood is pricey, the park welcomes all sorts.
