"I love to wander around Philadelphia, down Walnut Street all the way down to the Delaware River...all those little streets, it’s almost like being back in England."

Simon Doonan
Creative Ambassador-At-Large, Barneys New York

Uptown and Upscale
Historically the city's most prestigious and fashionable place to live, the neighborhood around Rittenhouse Square is now just as perfect a place to shop, dine, browse and celebrity-watch as any American city can offer. Teeming with high-fashion eye candy, unique boutiques and al fresco dining, Rittenhouse has broadened its base with the help of a resurgent nightclub scene and a high-rise condo boom.
