Newbold is essentially a sub-section within Point Breeze, however in 2003 a local bar owner labeled the neighborhood as “Newbold” in an effort to differentiate it from the rest of Point Breeze. Soon after, the Newbold CDC, Civic Association, and Neighbors Association were formed. The real estate website Redfin ranked Newbold as the 4th hottest neighborhood in the Philadelphia region, and #2 within city limits for the year 2014. Similar to other neighborhoods on the outskirts of Center City, Newbold is experiencing transformation, growth, and gentrification resulting in it being a hotbed for new construction and rehabs.
