Old City is a major site for American historic tourism. It is also the location of Elfreth’s Alley, the oldest residential street in America, which is still an active community. Its boundaries include Vine Street to the north Walnut Street to the south.
As the Design District of Philadelphia, it houses art galleries, design showrooms, & First Fridays. It is quickly becoming one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Philly, with an abundance of modern condos & industrial loft apartments--a small creative neighborhood where you can enjoy fine restaurants, mom & pop stores, shop in unique fashion boutiques, and take in a variety of theater, music & dance.
