Center City East Real Estate Market Overview

A mosaic of different cultures, nationalities - even eras - Center City East includes the distinct neighborhoods of Chinatown, Midtown Village (the "Gayborhood"), Washington Square West, Society Hill, and Old City. The latter three neighborhoods are most likely to pique the interest of tourists and history buffs: They help make up Philly's historic square mile, the storied waterfront section of the cit...y dating back to 1689 and made famous by its role in the American Revolution. Fast-forward to the 21st century, and the historic mile's hallowed landmarks, narrow cobblestone lanes, and Federal-style architecture provide a picture-perfect backdrop for modern art galleries, indie clothing boutiques, coffeehouses, and bars. The strip of North Third Street between Market and Race streets is particularly kinetic.View more
