West Philadelphia/University City
This area just across the Schuylkill expressway is home to Drexel and Penn, as well as a host of diverse neighborhoods. Homes mostly consist of grand victorian twins with the occasional section of airlites and rows. Enjoy Clark Park, the coffee shops, wonderful shopping centered around the universities and even a movie theatre! This section of the City is greener than most and one of the few where you’ll expect to find a front yard! Access to Center City is convenient on the trolley. Try Local 44 on Spruce for great brews as well as Dock Street Brewing Company in the old Firehouse on Baltimore! Brooke also loves two restaurants here: Distrito and Pod!
