Northern Liberties is one of Philadelphia’s most energized and growing areas. Harkening back to Penn’s industrial designation as a place for smiths and open space, Northern Liberties today is a fusion of artists, builders, musicians, professionals, young families, bistros, beer enthusiasts, studios, festivals, salons, and the new Piazza at Schmidt’s. You will also find dog parks, community gardens, and charter schools.
In Northern Liberties, old brick rowhomes, winding backstreets, and sleepy European gardens mix naturally with converted lofts, new high-rises, and a wealth of new services. Despite its growth and popularity, many buyers and those looking for apartments still appreciate the affordability and uniqueness of the spaces in this neighborhood.
