Real estate boundaries – 6th St. to the east, Broad St. to the west, Washington Ave. to the north, and Tasker St. to the south.
Passyunk Square, also known as, East Passyunk is full of attractions, from the two most famous cheesesteak shops, Pat’s & Geno’s, to the large number of boutiques and restaurants on East Passyunk Ave., to Columbus Square. Philadelphia is laid out as a grid, however, Passyunk Ave. is an exception to the rule and runs diagonally. While it was the Italian eateries that first made the avenue famous, it has since exploded on the culinary scene, with Food & Wine magazine recently awarding East Passyunk Ave. as one of the “10 Best Foodie Streets in America.” The real estate website, Redfin, selected their hottest neighborhoods for 2014 in the Philadelphia metro, and Passyunk Square came in at #3 in the area and #1 in the city. Exploding in popularity it has attracted both young professionals and families. Outside of the social atmosphere, a draw for young professionals working in town is the easy access to the Broad Street subway line which drops them within blocks of their office in the business district. Compared to Center City, Passyunk offers affordable housing, which includes large brownstones and charming trinities.
