Callowhill was once the industrial and manufacturing center of the city. In recent years the neighborhood has begun redeveloping with its walkability & proximity to Chinatown and Center City. Callowhill has a unique rugged landscape with remnants of old, large manufacturing buildings, affordable airy lofts & luxury condos. The area attracts young professionals as well as artists seeking affordable studio and gallery space. This up-and-coming community includes eclectic art galleries, Music venues, clubs, & the new Rail Park modeled after the New York City High Line Park. Its boundaries stretch from 8th Street to Broad Street extending to Spring Garden and Vine Streets running along Chinatown’s northern border.
