official statement Real estate boundaries – Zip codes 19127 (Manayunk) and 19128 (Roxborough).
Manayunk/Roxborough is about 15 minutes from Center City, King of Prussia, Chestnut Hill, and the Main Line. Located on the banks of the Schuylkill River, the nightlife allure of Main St. has brought Manayunk/Roxborough from a working class community to a significantly gentrified neighborhood of younger upper-middle class professionals and families. Conveniently located near Philadelphia University and St. Joe’s University, it has also become a popular destination for undergrads looking to move off campus. Its central location is ideal for commuting between the city and suburbs, and residents have an assortment of living options. There are large, single-family Victorians; traditional, turn of the century rowhomes; new construction townhomes; and contemporary lofts/condos. Main St. is lined with independent retailers, gourmet restaurants, late night bars, home décor stores, consignment shops, and custom boutiques among others. It provides the perfect blend of urban and suburban living, and your money goes a little further here than it does in Center City.
