Fitler Square, justly prized as a gem among Philadelphia's neighborhoods and is an easy walk from the city's most lively commercial areas, yet remains thoroughly residential.
Posh, exclusive and reclusive, this pocket of Philadelphia is where the well-to-do call home. With an average median price of over $1 million dollars it is one of Philadelphia’s most expensive places to reside and is also home to some of Philadelphia’s most prestigious private schools. Consisting of brownstones and classic Philadelphia row homes along tree-lined streets, Fitler Square is tucked away along the Schuylkill River just west of Rittenhouse Square, this sleepy neighborhood may not have the hustle and bustle as the majority of the neighborhoods in Philly but the residents wouldn’t have it any other way.
Although located just west of Center City this pocket of Philly doesn’t receive the heavy traffic that other sections of downtown receive. Tucked away along the Schuylkill River just west of Rittenhouse Square, this sleepy neighborhood doesn’t receive nearly the amount of traffic other neighborhoods receive due to the lack of “hip bars” and restaurants. Largely residential with several green spaces, this area is the perfect place to take a romantic stroll or just kind of get away from it all without really having to go far. Tranquil, serene and stately are the best words to describe the vibes here.
