For Rent: Queen Village Apartment Gets Tenants Hitched

Exterior of 338 Queen Street, Philadelphia, PA.

There must be something in the air in this modest Queen Village duplex for it to have — within the span of a decade —  three consecutive couples move in, and then decide to take the next step in their union. The last of these couples is now expecting.

Aside from its feel-good romantic vibes, the home, which has recently been repainted, is itself quite modest. Or to quote its realtor: “[It] may not be the fanciest of apartments, but it has the best mojo!”


Singles need not fret, by the way: a previously single tenant met someone while living here and moved out to continue a new life of coupledom.
