Good Value

This apartment is good value but the walls are very thin in the entire complex and within the unit.

Great find

It's not a high-end option, but it’s a great value if you want to optimize for space and location and want to keep your budget down. I've loved living in Fitler Square.

266 South 23rd Street - Solid

The apartment isn't beautiful looking, but it gets the job done. It is extremely spacious for the price, no doubt, but everything seems a little "lived in" - the carpets are stained, the walls are spotty, the heating system is a bunch of exposed pipes near the very high ceiling.

There's a stark contrast between the management and the super. The management is not particularly responsive. For example, it took me several months to get my name set up on the buzzer system for the front door. They did not get the place cleaned before I moved in, and they've moved slowly in response to issues (bugs, broken heating system). The super, Johnny, is incredibly responsive, and will help you fix/climb/exterminate anything you want at seemingly any time of day or night. So it evens out.

The ceilings are high, the neighborhood is fantastic, and it's overall not far from campus (20-minute walk from HUP). No gym or amenities included, but it's not a bad deal.

Great for young kids

Being close to campus, but still in Center City has been great. We love being close to Taney Park (the dog park) it has been one of the best things about the apartment. It is also nice to be close to the running/cycling trail. The apartment doesn't let in a lot of light and noise from the street, neighbors, and hall can be annoying at times, but not often.

Hidden Gem in Fitler Square

This apartment was a great find in Fitler Square. The location is extremely convenient, as it is a close walk to both campus and Rittenhouse Square. The apartment is very spacious, and has many features that have recently been redone, including the kitchen granite and hardwood floors.

About Fitler Square

Situated right along the Schuylkill River, Fitler Square is a quaint neighborhood full of old-school Philadelphia charm. It's part of a larger area more commonly referred to as 'Schuylkill' that's also comprised of Devil's Pocket and Grays Ferry. Renters rave about this area for the nearby parks and...

Fitler Square 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.
