Though it’s home to some of the oldest residences in Philadelphia, Queen Village simmers with modern energy, making it an ideal neighborhood for visitors who love to keep their fashion, food and fun low-key and local. A homey, welcoming tangle of narrow blocks, attractive architecture and mature trees, the area began as a working-class suburb. It eventually folded into the city proper in the mid-1800s. This unique history, coupled with its prime waterfront location and the old-time aesthetic charm, helps Queen Village stand out as one of Philly’s most stable and stirring pockets of city life.
Queen Village is extremely accessible and navigable by foot and bicycle, a perk not lost on residents particular about dining, drinking and shopping close to home.
Fabric Row, a stretch of 4th Street, takes its name from the many fabric shops and stores that line it. Though it also features some of the area’s top shopping and dining. Ever so slightly removed from Fabric Row, Queen Village’s chunk of 2nd Street features public green space and well-loved pubs and cafes to the south. To the north, it empties into Headhouse Square, a beautiful historic open space hosting popular bars and restaurants and Philly’s premier weekend farmers market.
While Queen Village is sandwiched between South Street, Society Hill and Bella Vista; it has an intense streak of civic pride. There are 13 different groups supporting parks, community members and monuments within the Queen Village Neighbors Association. This civic pride helps give Queen Village a sense of community in the midst of its deply urban setting.
Transportation: Multiple SEPTA bus routes run throughout the neighborhood, both from Center City and Washington Avenue, Queen Village’s southern border. Tightly packed residential streets, many lined with street-level private garages, make parking a challenge, especially at night. But motorists planning shorter-term visits can take advantage of multiple lots along Front Street.
A short walk through Queen Village offers BYOBs for all occasions, restaurants that inspire travel to Cypress, Southern France or India or a large slice of New York-style pizza with flawless culinary techniques only found in a cultural mecca like Philadelphia. Bella Vista hosts an array of fantastic places to eat and drink; which includes the Hungry Pigeon, Neuf, Kanella South, Little Fish, the Good King Tavern, Serpico, Square Pie, Imli and the venerable Famous 4th Street Deli; which rivals anything New York has to offer.
