Hamilton Review

I've lived here for two and a half years now and it has been an enjoyable experience. The apartment is spacious with separate bathrooms for me and my roommate. The facility is secure and has a very nice and spacious common area with a gym as well as an outdoor space.

The amenities and proximity to the subway are our favorite parts of the apartment. The lobby is a great study space!

Great amenity space, not so great at keeping promises

Excellent amenities and I love the staff. Occasionally they overpromise on timeframes.

Fairmount Reviews

When I first moved to Philadelphia (from out of state) I lived in a building in Center City because I wanted the central location closer to non-school activities and thought it might be safer. Now that I've moved, I vastly prefer Fairmount/Spring Garden. CC, especially where I lived, was very loud. Groceries can be a bit of a pain because I don't have a car (although this is improved now that there is a new Trader Joe's ~5 blocks away on Arch and a new CVS at Spring Garden!) I think it is about pretty much as safe as CC - fewer people around, which can go either way, but more residential and in a really beautiful area especially west of Broad St. Compared to CC there isn't quite as much to do, but there are still some bars and restaurants and there are relatively close coffee shops to study at if that's your thing. Lots of other students live in the area as well.
Close to public transport, new food options opening up, hopefully a grocery store soon as well (aldi)
Absolutely love living in Fairmount. It's safe, residential, and not crowded or congested as normal city living would feel. It is also very accessible to both Center City and greenery via the Schuylkill River and Fairmount Park. Adequate rental prices are hard to find in this area, but as a couple looking to share the rent for a one bedroom apartment, and with a local recommendation, we lucked out finding this place.
I am very happy with my choice of neighborhood - living on the western edge of Fairmount/Brewerytown. The bike trail is extremely close and conveniently goes straight to Penn. One of our favorite parts about this area is how pet-friendly it is. I see more dogs than I can count everyday just on my way to and from school. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It is a bit farther from Penn/Center City and other neighborhoods which is important to take into account when meeting up with friends or rainy/snowy days. The rent is great for how much space we have (3 floors).
Fairmount is it's own self-contained neighborhood. It is easy to take public transportation to other popular parts of the city if you're near Broad Street, otherwise, it quickly becomes more tedious. It's a pretty neighborhood, with Green Street and the Art Museum nearby, and is developing rapidly. Parking near shops and restaurants on Fairmount Ave is more difficult than in Center City or Rittenhouse Square because of the number of apartments without garages in the area.
I love the aparment itself - cozy space, modern accommodations, huge rooftop w/ great view!

There are, however, some downfalls that make living there less than ideal...

1) CON: There is a night club two doors down called The Playhouse that plays extremely loud music until 2am EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK. I'm 26 and understand that clubs will generally have big nights, and I'd be OK with that happening Friday/Saturday, maybe even a Thursday night. But a Sunday or Tuesday night? When I need to get a good night's sleep to be able to function at work? No way. It has been a huge pain, and my roommates & I felt that we were duped by our landlord into believing it wouldn't be an issue - yet we hear it every night.

2) CON: Living on N Broad St., you can definitely expect things to be on the uglier side of the spectrum, given the area's recent rugged history; still, the omnipresence of trash everywhere you look when you walk out your front door is simply appalling. No doubt, I hold those people accountable who can't hold on to their items until they reach a trash can or can't dispose of it in a practical manner, but the fact that it's SO difficult to find a trash can in certain parts of the city is a huge part of the problem - unlike NYC where there is a can every six feet. On a side note: NOBODY likes those trash cans where you have to touch/grab the handle to pull it open - it's just as bad as sticking your hand inside the can to pull trash out.

3) CON: Lack of security & overall unpredictability of the neighborhood. My girlfriend never even wants to stay at my place for fear of walking around the area. We made a stop at the CVS at Broad & Girard, and, during that visit, we saw two separate arrests & a drunken man yelling at the store clerk & every patron in sight. Aside from that, I was almost rammed off the road by a woman right at Broad & Poplar: Simply put, it seems she didn't like that I didn't realize the light was green for a few seconds, so she beeped her horn uncontrollably, drove up beside my car to lower her window & yell expletives, then take a sharp swerve to her right on the steering wheel to push me off the road. Luckily, I braked and she missed, but she had no intention of stopping as she drove up onto the sidewalk and continued through the following red light. Recently, I noticed I was side-swiped on my car parked right on Parrish, and I can absolutely attribute it to the fact that there are folks who drive in an insanely reckless manner in the neighborhood.

Constant violent remarks from absolute strangers, countless homeless individuals lining the streets, overall uncertainty of safety. The CONS undoubtedly weigh the PROS.

4) PROS include: I can hop on the BSL at the Fairmount station and make it to my office @ the Wanamaker in less than 20min door-to-door. I also like that there are some great bars/eateries within walking distance in the Fairmount area - even if I don't always feel completely safe walking late at night.
Fairmount is a more affordable part of Philly that offers great restaurants within walking distance. It is close to the Art Museum and Kelly Drive, so you can go for a run or a bike ride, or visit Eastern State. The Broad Street line runs close by, so transportation into Center City or out to the suburbs is easily done, and it is not too far to Center City (less than a mile) so walking, biking, or taking an uber is an affordable option. Street parking is usually easy to find, but can get difficult on weekends or around Halloween when Terror Behind the Walls is going on. Overall, a really fun place to live!
