Nestled between Spring Garden to Girard Avenues and between Broad St and the Schuylkill River lies Fairmount. What makes this area of the city truly special is its history and culture, with attractions such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, the Rodin Museum, and Eastern State Penitentiary. It’s no wonder why the art museum area was built around Kelly Drive, a picturesque stretch of road and greenery alongside the river. Here you’ll find many residents out for a jog or bike ride, walking their dogs, and rowing along the iconic glowing boat houses.
Spacious three-story homes are not hard to find in this area, most often loaded with character and charm. A few area high rises, such as those on Pennsylvania Avenue and Cityview Condominiums (2001 Hamilton Street), offer something for those looking for a full-service lifestyle.
