About West Philadelphia

West Philadelphia (or the more commonly used name, West Philly) is generally considered to reach from the western Schuylkill banks to Cobbs Creek. Because of the gently sloping hills of this area, the Center City skyline is visible from many points in West Philly. With a vibrant and storied history (including being home to a variety of uniquely ‘Philadelphian’ icons like the nation’s oldest zoological garden, the much-loved and long-running¬†American Bandstand, a¬†reference in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘s theme song, and much more), the eastern side of West Philly is also known as University City.

West Philly is also home to a rich variety of historically significant styles of homes, ranging from subdued Queen Anne style to Colonial Revival and Arts and Crafts styles. Also noteworthy is the Market-Frankford ‘El’ Line, linking West Philly to Center City and northward.
