Old City (Olde City) in Philadelphia – Philadelphia Neighborhoods

Old City is a very unique Philadelphia neighborhood in the City of Philadelphia. This is where William Penn and the Quakers first settled. The area is approximately 75 acres, which is a true rectangle that occupies streets West and East between 4th Street and Columbus Blvd and streets North and South between Spring Garden Street and Walnut Street.

Old City boasts one of Philadelphia’s more popular nightlife destinations, with many quality restaurants, lounges, bars, art galleries, and historical sites. The neighborhood is even residential, making it a very attractive Philadelphia neighborhood for many Philadelphians looking for an entertaining and cultural city experience.

Old City also goes by Olde City, Old City District, and the Old City Historic District. Because of Old City’s historical sites such as Elfreth’s Alley and Betsy Ross House, the Old City Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
