Callowhill

A Transforming Neighborhood Just North of Center City
What once was only manufacturing buildings, Callowhill is now home to a diverse set of apartment homes, music venues, and restaurants. Old industrial buildings have been converted into cool lofted apartments, many of which maintain their warehouse facades. Callowhill is also the capital of underground entertainment, with Electric Factory and Union Transfer hosting local and visiting artists each week.

Callowhill — 8/10 Rating (based on 9 neighborhood reviews)
My experience with the neighborhood has been very good. I have not had any trouble walking around late at night. There are a couple of excellent brunch places nearby right on Callowhill Street. Also, right across the street at the Hannover there is a nice grocery store.
You are about a ten minute walk from Chestnut Street, were you can find a shopping mall and ample stores for your convenience.

This is a great location, within walking distance of great restaurants and Cafe's in Rittenhouse etc.

Some are put off by the homeless population but this is the city, it is what it isb

The property values have skyrocketed. But this is a pretty dangerous neighborhood at night. No grocery stores in Callowhill/ Chinatown either. Food desert

(Illegal Housing) Living in Art Studio - Chinatow.
We are located in the center of 4 homeless centers, next to the highway, and a very busy intersection in which I see at least 2-4 accidents a month. You get all the cons of city living without any benefits of being close-by to any restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Reading Terminal Market is a few blocks away which has some of the best food shopping in the city. Chinatown provides some great nightlife for a night out. I hope some more brunch and restaurants open up in the area.

Neighborhood is great. There are some homeless people around, but I have never been harassed or bothered by them. You are a few blocks north of City Hall and the Center City bar/restaurant/shopping scene.

A lot of small cafes and shops around. Reading Terminal and Rail Park is a great boost to the neighborhood. Hope to see bigger retails stores like Target or grocery store opening up soon.
