Love Naval Square, hate my landlord

Naval Square is a beautiful, safe, and quiet gated community very close to CHOP. All of the buildings are relatively newly constructed (within last 5-12 years), and the amenities are fantastic. Lots of outdoor space, safe package delivery, bike and car parking, guest parking, etc. The apartments have great closets and spacious bathrooms.

I would NOT recommend renting from Udon "Albert" Ju - he has been incredibly difficult to communicate with, delayed necessary repairs, does not follow through on agreements, etc.

Naval Square

I love the convenience of Naval Square to the hospital and the quieter atmosphere it provides within the city. The units are modern with good lighting and amenities. Convenient gym and pool access, and the best part especially during covid restrictions is the large park with open green space.

Beautiful and safe community

I love living at Naval Square, especially due to the front lawn, gym, parking, and swimming pool. The only negative aspect is that the insulation between units is not very sound-proof, so I can frequently hear my upstairs neighbor. This is a very common complaint throughout the complex.

Best Apartment for Medical Students

Naval square has been great. Very close to the medical school/hospitals, and very quiet. Perfect if you are bringing your car to Penn.

About Devil's Pocket

At only 3 square blocks, many miss the smaller neighborhood of Devil's Pocket. Tucked in between Fitler Square, Graduate Hospital, and Grays Ferry, Devil's Pocket is home to a large Irish-American population. Gentrification has brought some local businesses to the area, such as Thai Square and Devil...

Devil's Pocket Reviews

28 reviews
The Graduate Hospital area is up and coming and a great spot. It's close enough to Rittenhouse's restaurants but also has it's own set of restaurants. It's full of young professionals, especially medical folks. It's very family friendly. It's close to the South Street Bridge, which I feel is a safer/easier bridge to bike/walk across to University City.
Nice being close to south street, but kinda annoying being close to the power plant (not all apartments are close to the plant).
Love living in the area. Close to the hospitals and the medical school. Decent restaurants and bars nearby.
Devil's Pocket has come a long way in the last 10 years. It has become very family friendly and a lot of stores have opened up that cater to young couples with kids. South Philly is still up and coming, but Devil's Pocket has already gotten there.
We like the neighborhood- family friendly. It does take more time to get to restaurants etc because we are in a more residential area but everything is still walkable!
Not near a huge variety of restaurants but very close to two small supermarkets. Relatively safe (Naval square itself is gated).
Close to campus, relatively quiet, some restaurants nearby, only nearby grocery store is overpriced, lots of vets and pet stores, nice place for young professionals
Graduate Hospital/ Devil's Pocket is exploding with growth, including new local grocers, parks and green space. A great community
