Dickinson Narrows, ‘Philadelphia's Newest Old Neighborhood,’ comprises the area from the south side of Washington Avenue to the north side of Mifflin Street and the west side of 4th Street to the east side of 6th Street and is perhaps the most diverse community within the boundaries of Philadelphia.

With an ever growing collection of newly constructed homes standing side-by-side lovingly restored antique homes (many predating the civil war), the Narrows has been a vibrant place to live for generations of South Philadelphians.

Our neighborhood is perfectly situated to meet the needs of individuals and families that delight in having the convenience of city living without the congestion associated with “Center City.” Whether walking or biking, City Hall is less than 30 minutes away.

The neighboring communities of Passyunk Square, with its bustling restaurants, and the 9th Street Market are just west of the Narrows and Pennsport and the riverfront along Columbus Boulevard, with countless retail businesses, are to the east. It's five minutes to I-95 and 15 minutes by car to Philadelphia International Airport's Terminal A — enabling you to travel the world right from your doorstep.

The Mountain Of South Philly

Known to most people as "That Big Abandoned Hospital," Mt. Sinai is the Divine Lorraine of South Philadelphia. This massive medical fortress was and still is the biggest and baddest building in Pennsport. Surrounded by and connected to a complex of smaller buildings old and new, the Mount Sinai Hospital, though stifled, manages to get its Art Deco amazingness to show through. Looming over its neighborhood for almost a century, Mt. Sinai Hospital isn’t part of the South Philadelphia Skyline, it IS the South Philadelphia Skyline.
