Rittenhouse Square

Rittenhouse Square is one of Philadelphia’s most popular neighborhoods. One of the five original squares planned by city founder William Penn in the late 17th century, the park at the heart of Rittenhouse Square is widely considered one of the finest urban public spaces in the country. The square is home to many works of public art, and the neighborhood serves as a hub for fine dining and extensive retail.
