BOUNDARIES

Bordered by Andorra on the north, Manayunk and East Falls to the south, and Wissahickon Valley to the east. While the precise location of these borders are ambiguous, it is reasonable to say that everything northeast of Manayunk Avenue up to Henry Avenue, and everything north of Leverington are part of the borough.

TRANSPORTATION

SEPTA Manyunk/Norristown Line, Cynwyd Line and various SEPTA bus lines make commuting a breeze.

Overview

Lying to the far northwest section of Philadelphia, Roxborough is one of Philadelphia’s near-city suburban communities bordered by the Schuykill River and the Wissahickon Creek. Roxborough’s main commercial corridor is Ridge Avenue.

As the name implies, the avenue bisect the neighborhood, making for perfect walking distances for all who reside there. There you’ll find quaint boutiques, coffee shops, clothiers, yoga studios, and plenty of historical residences in tow. Also, Fairmount Park is but a hop, skip and a jump from the neighborhood: it’s a large park great for cyclists, runners, dog walkers and many other types who simply enjoy the outdoors.
