Rittenhouse Square Reviews

I moved to Philly from Manhattan, and Rittenhouse Square feels like a dream. I have all of the amazing charm, food, shopping and culture that I would find in the best NYC neighborhoods with the accessible, quieter, friendlier feel of a smaller city. And there are a handful of parks within walking distance. We live in a brownstone on Spruce St. which helps give that comparatively suburban feel – not sure if it's the same in some of the high rises.
We love living in Center City! There is always something going on - parties, festivals, etc.

Pros: grocery stores within walking distance; very close to several buses and subway stations, as well as the railroad (Suburban station).

Cons: it can get loud but if your windows aren't facing the front of the building, you are fine :)
The Rittenhouse Square neighborhood is extremely safe. Most of the apartment buildings in the area are staffed with doormen to keep an eye on things especially at night. Though Rittenhouse Market is the closer grocery store, many opt to shop at the more affordable Trader Joe's that is located about 10 minutes away by foot. There is a good amount of construction being done in the area currently, so low floors in apartment complexes can be a little noisy, but this is not a constant problem.
central location with tons and restaurants and bars and close to rittenhouse square park. It is one of the safest areas in the city. downside is that there are not any super close grocery stores, and it can be noisy if you are on a lower floor, or if you are north or east facing (especially when the bars close)
There are tons of restaurants and bars in the area; 13th street is bumping. It's a short walk to the Italian market in south philly, Suburban and Jefferson SEPTA stations are just 12 minute walks, the Patco line runs right through the neighborhood. Tons of young people and students make the area a really great place to live!
Close to both University City and Center City campuses for Drexel. Subway and SEPTA bus stops, plus Drexel bus and the PHLASH (tourist bus). LOTS of construction at the moment, which is irritating at times. Logan Fountain is the place to be during the summer. Short walk to Trader Joe's during the winter when you're snowed in. Also able to walk to Reading Terminal Market (20 minutes), Chinatown (25 minutes), Old City and Penn's Landing (30-40 minutes). Honestly, I love the location and I love all the museums. I spend most of my time at them because I love them and they're so close. Millions of places to eat.
Living in Rittenhouse Square you are right in the middle of everything. It's a 20-30 minute walk to Penn but also an easy bus ride on the 21/42 (two of the more reliable SEPTA lines). It can be a little noisy and crowded but it is also incredibly safe and one of the only parts of the city where I feel totally comfortable at any time of night. Likewise it is more commercial and just less "charming" than living in a neighborhood like Fitler Square.
We are a few blocks away from Rittenhouse Square itself, right across the street from City Hall. The only complaint is that the street noise can be very noisy even on the 15th floor. Otherwise it has been great to be so central in the city to everything and for my student, so close to the trolley station at City Hall that runs him right to campus in 10-15mins.
