The area at Cambridge and Ridge is super close to Girard Ave which is heavily traveled by the Girard Avenue El traffic and other regular car traffic on Ridge. The location is is a development stage and "up and coming" as they say. Landmarks such as the area churches, the Girard Prison and Girard College give this area a Historic value as well.
There is a significant amount of restoration going on between Fairmount Ave and Girard, along Ridge Ave and further West. Many homes have been rehabbed and restored and there has been a sprouting of condo conversions throughout the area.
I (Stephanie) have lived at Corinthian and Girard and at 19th and Girard for a few years and I was quite fond of the area. It was easy access to center city and I easily found local jaunts to call my own including Life Sport Gym, numerous restaurants and grocery shops, North Star for live music, and so much more.
