"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."

Square In Name Only
A community of stately row homes and modern condos that's also home to Midtown Village, a hub of chic dining and eclectic shops. Washington Square showcases a bustling theater district, America's second-largest concentration of jewelry stores, an 18th century aura around Independence Hall and the heart of Philadelphia's thriving gay culture.
