Point Breeze

Affordable Rents and Quiet Nights
Point Breeze is one of Philly's hottest neighborhoods in 2017. Named after an old amusement park, this up and coming area is seeing come changes as new people move in and new restaurants pop up. Point Breeze is perfect for beer lovers - check out South Philly Tap Room and Second District Brewing for locally brewed beer! There are also several parks, such as the Wharton Square Park and Chew Playground, and the neighborhood is very walk and bike-friendly overall.

Point Breeze is set to be redesigned soon, but right now it is home to some of the cheapest rents in the city. While there are no big supermarkets here, there are plenty of little corners stores and local grocers, as well a a farmers market during the summer. This multicultural and residential area of lots of apartments and neighbors means less noise and crowd, and its proximity to Center City is a huge plus.

Point Breeze — 6.1/10 Rating (based on 9 neighborhood reviews)
I have lived in Point Breeze for three years. I love the neighborhood but it is a bit of an acquired taste especially for folks new to Philly. It is close to public transport and walkable to lots of great bars, restaurants, etc. It is far from campus, but I find that to be a plus. The neighborhood is changing very fast, which has both its positives and negatives. Good for a more "settled" person.

Point Breeze is "up and coming," so there's a lot of new construction, but it doesn't feel like the most safe neighborhood until you get used to it. There aren't really any solid nearby grocery stores, but because of how far it is from center city (I live around 18th and Warton), you don't have to pay for parking. I and my sister both have cars, so we can make a trip to Target or elsewhere to get what we need. Also, there's decently close public trans, so it's not hard to get things from the Terminal or the Trader Joe's on Market and bring it home. Finally, the nearby American Sardine Bar is probably one of the best bars I've been to, with a great relaxed (almost hipster) atmosphere, which was recently voted the best bar in Philly.

Point Breeze is a mix of residents that have been there for years and yuppies just moving in. It's also right next to the East Passyunk area, which has lots of bars and restaurants.

Not the safest area, but safer than most. No cheap nearby grocery store (acme sucks).

The neighborhood has had a lot of gentrification recently, and most of the houses on the block have been recently remodeled or are new constructions. A lot of young professionals around us. There isn't a ton to do within 3-5 blocks, you have to make it to South Street. But the homes/apartments are nice and affordable, the people are friendly, I feel safe.

Very affordable area to buy. Has easy access to CHOP by bike, but less convenient by public transit. Many bars and restaurants (though less than center city) with easy access to big grocery stores!

East Passyunk has blown up recently. Point Breeze remains close to that and the subway without being overpriced.
