Learn More About Queen Village & View Real Estate Listings for Sale

Queen Village, formerly known as Southwark, is the first suburb of Philadelphia & the oldest residential neighborhood in the city.  It lies just south of Society Hill & has all of the charm, however, the houses are smaller as these settlers didn’t have the means of the residents to the North.  In the late 70’s, during a period of influx & gentrification,  Southwark was renamed Queen Village to pay homage to the original Swedish settlers.  During this period of renewal much of the neighborhood was protected through it’s placement on the National Historic Register.  Queen Village is an interesting mix of adaptive re-uses of old buildings into condos, rehabilitated original row homes (many historically protected keeping the original fabric of the neighborhood intact) & new construction.  The neighborhood is serviced by the highly organized Queen Village Neighbors Association.

Restaurants, Bars & Nightlife

South Street has a reputation for being loud & rowdy on the weekends.  It is home to Jim’s Steaks, Ishkabibble’s & we are still hoping they rebuild Lorenzo’s Pizza after a fire ravaged the building this past summer.  The TLA is a great venue for live music.  Some notable restaurants include Ela, Cochon, Kennett,  Beau Monde & Famous 4th Street Deli.  L’etage is a great place to go dancing & always has great music.

Grocery Shopping

Queen Village does not have it’s own grocery store, however, the Whole Foods & Super Fresh on South Street in Bella Vista are nearby as well as the famed Italian Market.

Farmer’s Market

Society Hill has one of the best Farmer’s Market in the city at the historic Headhouse Square. Open every Saturday & Sunday May – December from 10-2 this market boasts over 30 vendors who offer some  of the best fruits, vegetables, flowers, artisan chocolates & cheeses, local honey &  fresh bakery items.  Tip: get there early…this market gets packed & bring cash. During the week South & Passyunk has a farmer’s market that sets up on Tuesday’s from 2:30-7.  It is located just east of 5th Street.  Bring cash!

Shopping

Fabric Row is not just a place to buy fabric & notions.  It is a local cultural institution that holds an important history for many residents of Philadelphia.  In the early 20th Century, South Philadelphia was home to scores of Jewish immigrants, many who were skilled tailors & seamstresses.  A lot of these early immigrants found work here sewing clothing for the wealthier residents of the city & selling goods on the street.  Many worked their way up & opened their own shops along 4th Street; some are still in business to this day.  There are many vintage stores that sell clothing & home goods such as the Antiquarian’s Delight, Wilbur Vintage & Tucker’s Digs. Brickbat Book Store is an awesome place to go and hunt for literary treasure.  There are also florists, salons & clothing boutiques along South Street & peppered into the neighborhood.

Green Space

This neighborhood values it’s green space & has a great sense of community.  The Mario Lanza Park on Queen between 2nd & 3rd, Shot Tower Playground on Carpenter between Front & 2nd & the Weccacoe Park around 4th & Queen.  Southwark/Queen Village Community Garden was created in the 1970’s as a place to garden with your community & give back to the neighborhood.  This garden is home to the largest mosaic mural in Philly by Isaiah Zagar of the Magic Garden fame.  This garden is also home to a grape arbor, an orchard & berry patch, flower beds, many varieties of irises, an herb garden, vegetable plots & it’s own bee hives!  This garden gives lots of the surplus back to the community through it’s partnership with City Harvest. Unfortunately the waiting list is 3 years long so they are not taking applications at this time.  It’s still a magical place to walk past in the summer.

Parking & Public Transportation

This neighborhood has a few parking lots, most by South & Lombard Streets.  Much of the neighborhood is by permit only, meaning, visitors may only park for a couple of hours at a time.  Queen Village is served by the 40, 57 & 64 bus routes.  Septa.org will be able to give you more route information.
