Philadelphia PA Cityscape

Overview of Roxborough

Renting a Roxborough apartment will set you up on the northwestern skirts of Philadelphia. This is a mostly middle class part of the city, but it’s got some variety to keep things interesting. Nearby universities attract students and leafy streets add a peaceful ambiance. It’s also one of the safest neighborhoods in Philly. Don't be fooled however—Roxborough is still part of the city, not a suburb.

Ridge Avenue splits Roxborough between its Wissahickon Creek and Schuylkill River sides. The neighborhood was named after Roxburghsire in Scotland. That’s where one of the area’s first settlers hailed from. In general, the neighborhood grows more affluent as you move north.

Roxborough Lifestyle and Entertainment

Most of the businesses in Roxborough can be found along Ridge Avenue. This thoroughfare—within walking distance for most residents—has your coffee bars, restaurants, shops, and services. The section of Fairmont Park that forms Roxborough’s eastern border is rife with room for runners, bikers, and day-trippers. There are other green spaces in the neighborhood as well.

Roxborough Info and the Rental Market

Wissahickon Creek and Fairmont Park separate Roxborough from the rest of the city of Philadelphia. That helps keep the neighborhood quiet. In lower Roxborough you’ll find plenty of rowhouses dating back to the 1800s. Towards the upper end of the neighborhood, you’ll find more lawns, garages, and newer places. Many of the homes in the north were built in the post-war period. You can expect to pay around $1,128 a month in rent for a two-bedroom Roxborough apartment.

Although you’ll be on the edge of the city, it’s still fairly easy to get to Center City from Roxborough. You can catch a SEPTA bus, trains on the Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail line, or bike in along one of the bike lanes.

Roxborough Resources

The Roxborough Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia system is on Ridge Avenue. There’s a United States Post Office on Ridge Avenue as well. Roxborough falls in City of Philadelphia City Council District 4.
