Tell me: What’s this place all about?
When William Penn (the man Pennsylvania is named for and the chap atop City Hall) planned Philadelphia, he designed five squares that function as parks. Rittenhouse, the most glamorous of them all, is both a park and a catchall name for the surrounding neighborhood, which is home to some of the city’s best restaurants, shopping, and real estate.
What’s it like being there?
The square itself is a beautifully designed, well maintained park. In summer, a fountain in the center functions as a gathering space. If the weather's nice, pick up picnic supplies at Di Bruno Bros. Rittenhouse and find a seat on one of the park’s many benches. Don’t be surprised if someone’s taking wedding photos nearby. If it’s chilly out—or if you have money to burn—grab a meal at Parc, which overlooks the square. After, stretch your legs by walking along Walnut Street, which is lined with high-end national brands, and Sansom Street, home to more local options, including the beloved Joseph Fox Bookshop.
How easy is it to navigate?
In addition to outlining the five squares, William Penn set up Philadelphia on a grid, so navigation here (and almost anywhere in town) is simple for those who like to walk. Uber, taxis, and buses are also widely available in this section of the city, but be forewarned about traffic.
