Tucked away and closet to the historic (long closed!) Eastern State Penitentiary, the hub of this neighborhood is its homey feel & restaurants galore. You will be wowed by its row homes and lovable dog parks.

Besides being a cultural center in the city, the Fairmount area also has a large number of residential sections. Most of the houses are row homes built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and feature the redbrick facades that are such a distinctive part of the city.

There are also several larger houses built when the area was still on the outskirts of Philadelphia. These include the Bergdoll Mansion, the Stetson house and the stately home of former local politician Vincent Fumo.

The Fairmount neighborhood is one of the quieter and most scenic sections of the city. Bordering on the river and alongside Fairmount Park, there is less through traffic than in other residential areas, and the natural dip in the land toward the river means that even smaller side streets often have distinctive views.
