Homes for Sale
Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.
Where to Live
Within a few blocks of South Street are a wide range of living options, from affordable, one-bedroom condominiums to brand-new, luxurious single-family homes. You may even luck out with a modest one-bedroom in the heart of South Street, where you'll want to be when the weekends roll in. Christian and Bainbridge Streets are also popular thoroughfares offering a wide range of housing, but if you can spring for a little luxury, Queen Street could be up your alley with its lush, waterside condos, decorated with draping vines and stately fencing. Queen Street also has a few dog parks and tons of dog-friendly businesses. For upscale living, West Bainbridge Street boasts some of the most picturesque row houses in Philadelphia.
Where to Eat
O'Neal's Irish Pub echoes Queen Village's beginnings. Oneal's is also already counting down for next St. Paddy's day, when they bring out the green beer and bagpipes. In the meantime, they've got a full menu of tasty pub classics to try. Another unpretentious favorite in the neighborhood is the famed Ishkabibble's, which serves up mouth-watering Philly cheesesteaks parallel to the Theatre of the Living Arts. Up and down South Street you can grab anything from burgers to Thai, and you'll find plenty of coffee, teas and fresh produce at the Farmer's Market. Head to Market Street for upscale steakhouses and Italian on South 4th Street.
What You'll See
Queen Village is a mash-up of activity. Historic areas meet modern culture without pretense. It can get a little congested when a concert hits The Theatre of the Living Arts. Be prepared to parallel park if you've got a car, but know you won't have a problem getting around on foot. There isn't much traffic in the area so overall. The Queen Village streets can feel like a scene from a movie or romance novel, and speaking of novels, Queen Village isn't short on bookstores.
Friday Night Fun
Neon lights and the illuminated South Street arch announce the beginning of weekend fun in Queen Village. The Theatre of the Living Arts is a South Street gem and also coined one of the best live music venues in the nation. Mix it up with unique dive bars, open mics, or a new tattoo at a local shop. Get all the retro vibes down Frankford Avenue at the 32-year-old (and counting) Philadelphia Record Exchange for vintage classics and new, hyped records on wax, cassette, and 78s. Plan to walk or rideshare, though, as South Street parking can get hairy.
The Perfect Sunday
Queen Village is just south of Old City, which contains the Liberty Bell along with several monuments and museums. If you've got little ones, bring them to Shot Tower Playground to play in the sun, or catch a movie screening at Sparks Shot Tower by night. Several other green parks in the area are great places to read a new book or play with your dog.
Depending on what type of housing situation you're seeking, you can spend a pretty penny for plenty of space or find a more modest, budget-friendly abode. You'll pay less here than you would in Society Hill, but your space won't be as aesthetically pleasing for the same square footage. Historic rowhouses and larger townhomes on West Bainbridge Street have high price points. For something less expensive, look for a loft around South Street.
Queen Village is the perfect locale for biking or walking to and fro. Many residents choose the area because of its extreme accessibility. Within this small area, there are several local markets and shops for everyday groceries and errands. By car, a drive to the Philadelphia International Airport is around 15 minutes, with I-95 easily accessible. You can also hop on the SEPTA bus lines and take the 57 on 3rd Street & Fitzwater Street to the 17 and 33 bus routes. The Suburban Station will get you on the Airport Line to the airport in under an hour.
