For Sale: Five Homes Within Walking Distance of Fitler Square

Fitler Square is an intimate park of about half an acre at 23rd and Pine. The quiet, tree-lined streets that surround it have pretty homes and are free from honking horns and hurried pedestrian traffic. The Fitler Square neighborhood, according to the Fitler Square Improvement Association, is bounded by Locust Street and South Street, and extends from 21st Street to the Schuylkill River. As such, the neighborhood is the perfect location for those who want calm and quiet but also like easy access to bustle.
