Fairmount/Art Museum Real Estate Market Overview

Flanked by stately trees and punctuated by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway serves as the cornerstone of the city's arts and culture scenes - and as the front yard of Philly's Fairmount residents. Venture away from the Parkway's spate of world-class museums, however, and you'll find that things in Fairmount (a.k.a. the "Art Museum area") don't quite move... at a tourist's frenzied pace. In this neighborhood just northwest of Center City, you're likely to encounter young moms and dads leisurely pushing strollers, friends catching up over craft brews and mussels at The Belgian Cafe, or shoppers browsing the farmers markets that frequently pop up in the shadow of Eastern State Penitentiary.View more
