Famous as the birthplace of Philadelphia’s 1960s counterculture and world famous “Philadelphia sound” soul music, South Street is also a very popular place to live. The South Street neighborhood borders the Center City area, and is characterized by the stretch between Front and Seventh streets. Starting in the late 60s and early 70s, bars and clubs started to open on the street to help Philly’s nascent music scene grow, and over the years it’s become one of the hottest stretches in the city. Hipsters have been flocking here for ages, and while the area has become more commercialized, it hasn’t lost its artistic charm. Some of the city’s best boutiques are in South Street, as well as great restaurants. The famous Mummer’s Museum draws crowds, and there are plenty of excellent food markets too.
