North Philly is the place for adventurers. Throughout the 70s and 80s, the area was hit hard by urban decline, as middle-class families fled the city for the suburbs. However, a dedicated effort has been made to rehabilitate the area, and North Philly now boasts some very attractive living areas. One great example is Brewerytown, a charming stretch along the Schuykill River that has seen its historic buildings rehabilitated into office space and attractive loft apartments. Other hot neighborhoods include Francisville, Poplar and West Kensington. The area has a wide variety of primary and secondary schools, as well as hosting La Salle University and Temple University.
