Around Dockside: Rittenhouse Square

Long considered one of the best neighborhoods in the city, Rittenhouse Square is known for its historic, tree lined residential streets with beautiful architecture, as well as being a center for dining, shopping & business. At any time of year, the neighborhood is buzzing with activity. Rittenhouse Square gets its name from the one-square-block park between 18th & Rittenhouse and Walnut & Locust streets. The historic green space is bordered by apartment buildings and some of the best restaurants in the city. During the warmer months, you can find festivals, farmers’ markets and fairs. This beautiful park is popular among sunbathers, readers, families, artists, picnickers and dogs. This section of the city is also home to major corridors of upscale national chain boutiques and stores, notably, along Walnut and Chestnut streets between Broad and 20th streets.

Rittenhouse is bound by Broad Street — also known as the Avenue of the Arts — to the east, the Schuylkill River to the west, Market Street and Logan Square to the north, and Lombard Street and the Graduate Hospital neighborhood to the south. It’s easily accessible for out-of-towners: Two train stations, Suburban Station and Amtrak’s 30th Street Station, are a short walk or ride away.
