Graduate Neighborhood / SW Center City Real Estate

    A neighborhood in the southwestern section of Center City Philadelphia, this area is bordered by South Street on the north, Washington Avenue to the south, the Schuylkill River on the west and Broad Street on the east.  Adjacent to Fitler Square and Rittenhouse Square, it is frequently referred to as the “Graduate neighborhood” after the hospital that closed in 2007, reopening as an arm of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

    The neighborhood boasts 19th and 20th century townhomes, originally built for the working class of Philadelphia’s Industrial Age.  Now home to business professionals and families, Graduate offers a quiet residential community that is just a short walk from Rittenhouse Square and the heart of downtown Philadelphia.
