Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
Most of the neighborhood’s large commercial, industrial, and transportation properties are along the Delaware River and I-95, leaving a pocket of residences in its center. There are several blocks of homes north of the highway which seems cut-off from the rest of Bridesburg. They’re also next door to some large commercial and distribution businesses and close to railroad tracks, so it’s noisier there than the rest of the neighborhood.
Bridesburg’s median home value is noticeably higher than most of the other neighborhoods in the immediate area. It has a reputation for having generations of families stay in the neighborhood, creating a stable area with well-maintained homes and small businesses.
Where to Eat
The neighborhood really isn’t well known for its dining scene, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t good places to eat. There are a handful of pizzerias and home-style restaurants in Bridesburg, most of which have served the community for years. Some places’ menus reflect the Polish heritage of the neighborhood, specializing in such delicacies as pierogi, potato pancakes, and pickle soup.
What You'll See
Bridesburg resembles most North Philly neighborhoods. There are a lot of older row homes along narrow streets with some occasional trees or greenspaces popping up here and there. You’ll also find several impressive Catholic churches built by immigrants in the mid 1800s.
Friday Night Fun
There are several neighborhood bars in Bridesburg. Some have pub grub menus; all have a great “old-school” vibe to them. For other Friday night entertainments, locals typically head out to a full range of venues from movie theaters to dance clubs to live performances, within a 20-minute drive of the neighborhood.
The Perfect Sunday
Bridesburg Park is home to a number of youth sports leagues, so it’s likely the kids will have a game or match to play on Sunday. If not, there’s a nice modern playground for them to play at and in the summer, residents of all ages can beat the heat at the newly rebuilt swimming pool. The park’s recreation center hosts a number of community events on weekends throughout the year, so there’s a chance to catch a free movie or concert on a Sunday afternoon.
SEPTA (Southeast Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) has a couple of options for Bridesburg residents. There’s the Bridesburg stop along the Trenton train line, which makes getting to Center City and other downtown neighborhoods easy. There are also bus lines
along Richmond, Aramingo, and Bridge Streets, so getting around North Philly is also convenient.
Bridesburg is somewhat walkable at best. There aren’t many grocery and retail service stores in the neighborhood, so using a car or taking a bus become the only two options for some errands. There are certainly enough sidewalks for casual walking around, but the streets are narrow and typically have parked cars on them, so bicycling can be difficult.
Easy commute to downtown • Bridesburg Park • Strong sense of community.
Locals Don't Love
Expressway noise • Lack of nightlife.
