The grand historical residences, charming tree canopies and eclectic personage suggest Spruce Hill shares plenty of urban DNA with neighboring Cedar Park. But this former “streetcar suburb,” which posts north-south boundaries of Market Street and Woodland Avenue and 38th and 46th streets as its east and west extremities, has a charm all its own.

Baltimore Avenue, the ‘hood’s primary multicultural backbone, is a shining nouveau-Boho showpiece, and the diversity here reaches in all directions. Spruce Hill residents include African, Asian and Middle Eastern families young and old, as well as a fast-growing community of Muslim residents and small business owners clustered around 44th and Walnut.

Clark Park, perhaps the best-known public green space in this portion of West Philly, is a true microcosm of Spruce Hill’s integration and ingenuity, attracting an energizing melange of athletes, artists, entrepreneurs, musicians and that unmistakable brand of West Philly “character” you just can’t find anywhere else.
