Queen Village

Queen Village is a residential neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that lies along the eastern edge of the city, just south of Center City. It shares boundaries with Society Hill to the north, Bella Vista to the west and Pennsport to the south. Historically, the area is part of old Southwark, Philadelphia’s first suburb, which was incorporated into the city in 1856 and remains the city’s oldest residential neighborhood. Queen Village is home to the historic Fabric Row, which is not only the largest, but the oldest fabric district in the entire country. The School District of Philadelphia serves the area, with residents being zoned for the William M. Meredith School or the George W Nebinger School. All residents are zoned for the Horace Howard Furness High School. The Free Library of Philadelphia operates the Charles Santore Branch and the Independence Branch within Queen Village. Some dining highlights include Zahav (237 St James Pl.), Hungry Pigeon (743 S. 4th St) and the Famous 4th Street Deli (700 S. Fourth St.).
