Hottest Philadelphia City Neighborhoods: Let’s Start With Graduate Hospital

The April 2013 issue of Philadelphia Magazine should be hitting newsstands soon, and the cover story is about the hottest neighborhoods in our area. While the entire issue won’t be online till mid-April, the site will be rolling out one of those hothothot neighborhoods each day, and you can find a tantalizing preview right here.

Let’s start with the neighborhood that will come as no great surprise to any longtime real estate watcher: Graduate Hospital, generally defined as the neighborhood between South Street and Washington Avenue, and Broad Street to the Schuylkill River. This is a place where homes sell blazingly fast, new construction is jackhammeringly ascendant and rentals have become extremely tight. What else might draw people to it?

    A new bridge, new 22-acre development, rehabilitation, new construction and, no less important, a revitalized interest in volunteering (street sweeping, bulb planting, school tutoring and so forth) have combined to improve the Graduate Hospital experience//

    Wish a NEW name could be attached to this hood. Graduate Hospital closed years ago. Was hoping SoSo (South of South) would catch on!
