Manayunk

Small Town Charm on the Edge on Philly
Just outside Center City lies Manayunk, a charming neighborhood with an urban feel. This Native American word means "where we to go drink", which references the Schuylkill River that runs near it. These days it could also stand for the vibrant nightlife that draws visitors from all over the Delaware Valley. Manayunk's main thoroughfare, aptly named "Main Street" is bustling with scores of local restaurants, desginer boutiques, lively bars, and art galleries. Many long standing events occur throughout the year, like the Manayunk Arts Festival, the Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival, and Restaurant Week. Cycling is also big in this neighborhood - bikers frequently take on its hilly roads, particularly "The Wall."

The median age of Manayunk residents is 31 years old. The area is home to a much younger crowd - early professionals, graduate students, and some families and multigenerational residents. The real estate market is also varied - industrial row homes, trendy lofts, contemporary townhouses, and single Victorians line its hilly streets. The SEPTA Regional Rail makes it easy to get to and from the city, so why wait any longer to experience the allure of Manayunk?
