Mt. Airy Named Top City Neighborhood Nationwide by CNN

MT AIRY RESTAURANTS

Happy Thursday, Philadelphia! It’s a most wonderful day in the neighborhood…

This week, one of Philadelphia’s neighborhoods was voted by CNN as one of the top city neighborhoods nationwide.

Mt. Airy was among the 10 neighborhoods that were featured, alongside Brooklyn’s Park Slope, Lakeview in Chicago, and Silver Lake, Los Angeles. The neighborhood’s “racially and religiously diverse” population was cited as well as the “historic homes and leafy streets.”

Houses in the area start at about $200,000, roughly 30% lower than its neighboring areas. With just a 10-minute walk from Fairmount Park, and rentals and real estate being quite low, Mt. Airy is a great choice if you’re looking to move to the Philadelphia area! Crime rates are also lower than for the city overall. If interested in looking at properties, contact us today!

Germantown Avenue, which divides East and West Mount Airy, is the backbone of the neighborhood and home to shops, art centers, and restaurants.

Goat Hollow

“Take a neighborhood bar whose owners aged out of the business. Stir in two veterans of the Center City restaurant scene, and add a chef who knows what a bar crowd wants to eat. That’s the recipe at just-reopened Goat Hollow on Mount Pleasant Avenue in Mount Airy. ” Whether you stop in for lunch, dinner, or brunch, Goat Hollow is a great American brassiere you should check out! Their extensive and creative menu features anything from scallops over risotto cakes, fried chicken and waffles, vegan tofu stir-fry, to delicious burgers and sandwiches.
