Fairmount Reviews

Fairmount is an excellent area to live in. It is walking distance to the Schuylkill trail, great for biking to work, exercising or relaxing by the river. The area has great restaurants, easy-to-find parking and an excellent massive Whole Foods with 4 restaurants inside. It is also very easy to walk to downtown Philly (15-40 min walk for most of Center City and University City).
Pros: close-knit neighborhood where residents look out for each other and know each others' names, lots of families and students, low noise, walkable to Girard and Fairmount BSL stops, close to Fairmount Ave shops and restaurants, overall v. safe feel

Cons: be careful and use common sense walking around Girard and Broad at night - some blocks are sketchier than others
The Fairmount area is a great place to live. It is close to a lot of the city's attractions and art, and equally close to some great outdoor space. The neighborhood is generally pretty quiet, and parking is easier than in Center City. There are a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, and pubs within easy walking distance. There are a lot of neighborhood events, especially in the summer, that are great to attend. The major downfall (if you see it that way) is the city run events that happen at the art museum from time to time. These really close down the neighborhood and make parking and driving really hard. But, they are usually fun to attend or spectate.
I absolutely loves the location. Easy walk to work, good food options ranging from fine dining to late-night pizza to bars. It's close to a Whole Foods and a local family owned market called Kleins. Unfortunately, Fairmount is only assessable by bus. City Hall and 30th Street Station is a 30 minute walk away if you need to take the MFL or Regional Rail lines.
- close to whole foods
- close to amazing restaurants
- close walk into center city
- close enough to 2 train stations
- close to many bus routes
- close to many museums
- close to kelly drive and Fairmount park

- far from liquor stores
- far from nightlife/popular philly bars
Pros: Ample street parking, safe area, very close to center city, new restaurants and bars, good and quick building management

Cons: Rent is a bit steep, but you do get a lot of space for your money. Pool/tub/gym area should be accessible past 11 pm and before 6 am for those who are up.
Good neighborhood, great sense of community overall. Still some slightly scary areas but the neighborhood has changed so much over the past couple of years. Could use more restaurant options, especially in the evenings.
I was pleasantly surprised when I settled into Fairmount. It feels safe. It is full of families with young childrens and dogs and young professionals. There's also a great restaurant and bar selection.
