Hottest Philadelphia neighborhoods: Passyunk Square
South Philadelphia’s Passyunk Square is quickly becoming one of the hottest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. And it’s no wonder — the area surrounding East Passyunk Avenue boasts several great parks and recreation centers, dining and nightlife, affordable housing, easy transportation options to Center City and a diverse coterie of engaged neighbors. Passyunk Square is a melting pot of cultures with the small-town feel to match.
Creative, affordable restaurants are garnering buzz especially Genos and . Beyond fine dining, it’s easy to find great taquerias and pho restaurants on any corner. Plus, the Lower 9th Street Italian Market is only a few blocks away from the legendary cheesesteak crossroads at Pat’s and Geno’s.
