Though it’s populated by some of the oldest residences in Philadelphia, Queen Village simmers with modern energy, making it an ideal neighborhood for visitors who love to keep their fashion, food and fun low-key and local.

A homey, welcoming tangle of narrow blocks, pert architecture and mature trees, the area was founded as a working-class suburb, but was eventually folded into the city proper in the mid-1800s. This unique history, coupled with its prime waterfront location and the old-time aesthetic charm it shares with neighboring Society Hill, helps Queen Village stand out as one of Philly’s most stable and stirring pockets of city life.

The longest-established neighborhood in this close-knit slice of Philly, Queen Village is extremely accessible and navigable by foot and bicycle, a perk not lost on residents who are particular about dining, drinking and shopping close to home.

Popular Corridors

Fashion Row
This stretch of 4th Street is widely known for its proliferation of fabric shops and stores, but it also features some of the area’s top shopping and dining.

Second Street/Headhouse Square
Ever so slightly removed from Fabric Row, Queen Village’s chunk of Second Street features public green space and well-loved pubs and cafes to the south. To the north, it empties into Headhouse Square, a beautiful historic open space home to popular bars and restaurants and Philly’s premier weekend farmers market.
