Manayunk Real Estate Market Overview

The name Manayunk is taken from manaiung, the Lenape Indian word for "river." It's a fitting name for this hilly neighborhood built on the banks of the Schuylkill River, especially considering the vital role water played in shaping Manayunk's history. Way back in the 19th century, a two-mile stretch of canal brought water power - and a prosperous textile industry - to the area's once-quiet sh...ores. The mills and factories are now long-gone, but the canal (listed on the National Register of Historic Places) remains, though nowadays it's more aligned with recreation than hard labor. The canal is paralleled by a multiuse trail (the towpath), typically replete with joggers, walkers, and bicyclists (cycling is big in this part of town), and, if the season's right, waddling ducklings. Main Street bustles with shoppers and barhoppers, while row homes that once housed mill workers are now occupied by college kids, young families, and Manayunk lifers.View more
