East Falls was listed as our top neighborhood when we were looking into buying our first house and now that we live here, we couldn't be happier. As a young (ish) married couple, we truly feel like we are part of a close knitted, diverse community - and a community in which we would feel very happy raising a family when the right time comes. Simply put, we find East Falls to be community oriented, family friendly, clean, safe, and vibrant.

East Falls is a hidden gem that is a small village on the banks of the river. Beautiful Kelly Drive and Fairmount Park with bike trails and linear park zip you in and out of the city center and 30th street station. Green, friendly, and with the charming feel of an authentic working class neighborhood and a progressive attitude.
Love living in East Falls. It's like being neighbors with the whole community. Can't imagine living anywhere else in Philadelphia.
