Real estate boundaries – The Delaware River to the east, 4th St. to the west, Washington Ave. to the north, and Snyder Ave. to the south.
Pennsport’s claim to fame is that it’s home to “Two Street”. “Two Street” is the stretch between Front St. and 3rd St. which houses many of the Mummer’s clubhouses and watering holes. For those non-Philadelphians reading this, the Mummers are worth a quick Google search, but you’ll never quite understand them until you experience the New Year’s Day Parade (even then you still may have some questions), but for you Philadelphians, you understand the significance and have most likely spent a New Year’s Day afternoon celebrating on “Two Street”. A lot of energy has been, and continues to be inserted into Pennsport. New shops and restaurants continue to pop up, which has improved the social scene. The majority of the neighborhood consists of traditional, Philadelphia rowhomes. The neighborhood has seen more renovation work than new construction. Lots of investors are going in and updating/modernizing preexisting homes. Pennsport is not the most accessible neighborhood via public transit. However, there are buses that you can catch, and it’s conveniently located close to I-95 for those commuting outside of the city. Pennsport offers a more affordable price point, but still allows for easy access into Center City.
