Fitler Square — 8.6/10 Rating (based on 118 neighborhood 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.

The neighborhood is full of bars, restaurants, and very close to shopping (5-10 minute walk to stores like H&M, Ulta, Buffalo Exchange, Nordstrom Rack, etc). The apartment is a 5 minute walk from Trader Joe's. There are two beer/corner stores within a one-minute walk of the apartment. It's walking distance from the law school.

Pros: If you go to school at Wharton/Penn, it's a close walk. Tends to be a better value than Rittenhouse. Very quiet and clean.

Cons: Not as many restaurants or bars. Can be far from your friends' houses on the other side of Rittenhouse. Still expensive compared to most of Philly.

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.

N/A - it's a single family row house
Some pros to living in Fitler Square are that it's close to 2401 and the area is safe and quiet. You have easy access to the Schuylkill River, freeway, buses, trolley. Additionally, Trader Joes, Rite Aid, and ATM machines are within 3 blocks.There are plenty of neighborhood restaurants and coffee shops, and the area is family and pet friendly.

Some cons are that it's far from the bar and party scene. Most students live in the high rise buildings so you don't see too many Wharton students when walking around the neighborhood as the neighborhood only has brownstones. So coordinating Uber rides to campus or needing large common areas to study and do group work (other than 2401) is challenging if you have an apartment in this neighborhood.

Pros:
- Close to campus - closest out of all Center City apartments
- Right by the river (which is gorgeous)
- Super close to 30St Station and megabus / boltbus busstops
- Quiet residential area
- Yet, only a 5-10mins walk to Rittenthouse and popular bars and restaurants
- SWEAT gym is a minute walk away
- busstop for busses 21 and 42 is a minute walk away (right by SWEAT)
- Good karma cafe for your daily coffee fix is just 2 mins away :)

Con:
- No closeby grocery store. We manage fine with a weekly visit to the South St. Supermarket (15 min walk away). Riteaid is just 2 mins away for more urgent needs.

Center City is a fantastic area. I live on the northern side of it, which is the more financial/industrial/apartment building side. I live 2 blocks from a busy Trader Joe's and inches away from tons of great restaurants, corner stores, and shops. It's close to Rittenhouse Square, a swanky square block with a tiny park in the middle, as well as the Schuylkill River trail (great for running and biking) and the Art Museum area. Multiple major bus lines slice through this neighborhood, making it quite easy to get anywhere when you don't want to walk or bike.

This spot is perfect -- closer to campus, near the train station, huge spaces, kind and helpful staff, cool-looking building, new gym, beautiful park nearby, and overall easy and awesome loft-style living experience. I think people will pressure to have to live on Rittenhouse because that's what everyone immediately says to do, but in reality you can live near Rittenhouse (Locust on the Park is just a 5 minute walk to the square) and not miss out on anything. Fitler Square is beautiful, quiet, and still a perfect location.

Our house is located right on the northern edge of the Fitler Square area. We love the feel of the neighborhood-- there are several historical homes, lots of trees and narrow, bricked streets. It's very quiet and close to all amentities. In addition, it's one of the closest locations in Center City to campus. It takes my husband about 20 minutes to walk to Huntsman and if it's raining or snowing there is a bus that picks him up a block away and drops him right in front. 2401 is only 2 short blocks north! We are close to grocery stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, parks and coffee shops. While we are a bit removed from the popular bars (about a 10 minute walk or 3 minute Uber), it's still easy to meet up with friends for happy hours, etc.

Fitler square is great. It is a little bit removed from the rest of the Wharton crowd over closer to Rittenhouse, but we are never more than a 10 min walk from anything going on over there. We are 5 min from 2401 and a quicker walk to campus. Not quite as many food options immediately around us as Rittenhouse, but plenty to choose from, and like I said no more than a 10 min walk to anything around Rittenhouse.

Neighborhood is very safe with lots of families and kids and very quiet. We are one block from the Schuylkill river park and the trail/dog run there which is great for us as dog owners.

Walk is the same or shorter as a Rittenhouse location, and I generally walk across South Street bridge although it's only a hair longer to go via Walnut. If you're on a side street it's quieter than our home was in suburban Virginia. Decent grocer at 23rd and South.
