Resting just beyond Benjamin Franklin Parkway, home to Philly’s truly world-class museums, Fairmount is synonymous with fine art — but it’s far from the only draw of Center City’s effusive northern neighbor. Often referred to as the “Art Museum Area” due to its walking-distance access to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Franklin Institute, Rodin and Barnes Foundation, Fairmount possesses a distinct personality that thrives independent of those hallowed halls.
Just far enough away from “the city,” young families are investing in a life here, drawn in equal stead by the proximity to beautiful green space and the thriving food scene. Getting acquainted with Fairmount is now easier than ever, thanks to surrounding neighborhoods on the commercial and residential rise.
