Northeast Philadelphia Real Estate Market Overview

Philadelphia is often referred to as a city of neighborhoods, and Northeast Philadelphia (better known as "the Great Northeast") makes it easy to see why. From Bridesburg and Bustleton to Tacony and Torresdale, more than a dozen different working-class neighborhoods fall under the "Northeast Philly" umbrella, which encompasses more than 40 square miles of row home-lined residential streets. In fac...t, Northeast Philly is where a sizable portion of Philly lifers are born, bred, and remain to introduce their own kids to the distinctive hallmarks of the area: the regular rumbling of SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line (the "El"), the taste of Santucci's pizza, and the thrill of hiking through the 1,300-acre Pennypack Park.View more
