Location and Amenities

The apartment itself is only about 800 square feet; however, it has 16 foot ceilings with 12 foot windows that faced the skuchyill river that made the space feel open and light. For busy residents who are at HUP/CHOP, this location is ideal as it is about a 20 minute walk (8-10 minute bike ride) to HUP (likely closer to 30 minute walk to VA/Presby), plus it is right on the schukyill river trail if you enjoy running (it also has a 24 hour gym - small, no smith press/squat, but not busy).
- Parking: Yes, covered. Can be rented depending on availability
- Utilities: Modern heating and cooling that was reasonable ($50-75 per month)
- Groceries: TJs is 10 minute walking distance
- Washer and Dryer: Yes, in unit
- Storage unit: Yes, on same floor
- Resturant: Easy walk to Rittenhouse/graduate hospital area

Great Condo Building

It can be hard to find a unit here because it's all rent by owner, but it's a great place to live. Locust Point is close to campus, clean, and has spacious apartments, laundry in unit, and a gym in the building.

Fitler Square Reviews

168 reviews
The neighborhood is perfect for my needs. I am 1 block from the Schulykill park (and the running/biking trail) (and dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts). I'm also half a block from Fitler Square. I am about 7 minutes via bike from CHOP and on closer to my clinic site than the hospital. I'm north of South Street so closer to the action and very close to the gym. Also Delancey is a very good looking street.
Wharton bubble. I love it. Decent restaurants-- not as many fast+healthy+good-value meal options nearby as I'd like but many nice places. Nightlife is what Wharton makes it. Easy walk to some cool stuff in town.

Chestnut street has more of a homeless problem than I'd like but that will be hard to avoid in general, has not been a problem for me personally.
Couldn't be better. Walk to my favorite restaurants and bars in less than 5minutes. Walk to my gyms/work out studios in as little as 4 min. 1.5 blocks away from bus stop and Septa trolley. Trader Joes down the block as is Rite Aid, CVS, multiple take-out restaurants. Can walk to work in 20 mins. Many residents live nearby-social hub.
I was looking for a more authentic Philly experience outside of the heavily commercialized Rittenhouse Square area. Fitler Square is one of the most charming and beautiful neighborhoods in Philly. Amazing location next to a Starbucks, grocery store, bars, and many other amenities. So happy to be here. Love this neighborhood
Our neighbors have been quiet, lots of people with pets and young families. The neighborhood is pretty calm, cars are fairly rare and it’s very walkable. There’s a grocery store about 3 blocks away, which is great, and there are a lot of trees, which is always nice.
It is terribly unexceptional, which may be a good thing - no crowds, gawping tourists, amateur sports teams on a night out, etc. There are a few restaurants and bars nearby and you are generally in walking distance of everything you might need
Fitler square is primarily behind Riverloft (which faces Walnut). You're really in Center City. The Fitler square neighborhood is amazing for walks with dog, running, hanging out in the park, small cuter-type restaurants, etc. Probably more attractive to couples, families, and lower-key students. A little bit of a walk (10 minutes) for bar scene, with exception to Pub and Bonners.
I think Fitler Square has it all. It has its own good bars and restaurants and is only a couple blocks to the full host of things at Rittenhouse. Easy walk to campus or convenient Route 40 bus. Multiple parks including the one at Taney and Lombard which is one of the biggest parks in the city and part of the Schuylkill River Trail. Decent grocery store right at 23rd and south, but still a reasonable walk to Trader Joes at 22nd and Market too.
