The neighborhood falls between Cecil B. Moore and Girard Ave north to south, and Front St to 6th street east and west. Some sources even go up to Berks for the northern boundary. With an El stop (Market Frankford Line) at Girard and Front, it will take around 20 minutes to get you from your home to City Hall.


Following the trend of many other rebounding neighborhoods in Philly, Olde Kensington is getting a fresh look. Once heavily industrial, Olde Kensington developers and homeowners are making it residential, turning abandoned warehouses into modern abodes and artist studios.

Olde Kensington hangs with its neighbors (Northern Liberties to the south, Fishtown to the east) when it comes to a hopping food scene. Mexican, Indian, American - this neighborhood scores 4+ stars on yelp for its spread of delicious goodness. As the neighborhood develops, expect it to continue to attract restaurants worthy of the Philly standard.
