Queens Village was one of the first communities incorporated into the Greater Philadelphia area in 1854 and remains one of the oldest neighborhoods in Philadelphia.

Local Lifestyle

Queen Village is a small, tight-knit community offering a sense of suburban peace. Its South Street Head House District represents over 300 cafes, restaurants, entertainment venues, and shops, which makes it attractive to new businesses that provide a constant, steady stream of revenue and vibrance to the area. Residents appreciate how everything is easily accessible on foot and regularly patronize nearby parks, family-operated diners, and locally-owned stores.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

If you just take a leisurely walk down Fourth Street in Queen Village you might as well bring your appetite! The Famous 4th Street Delicatessen, famous for jumbo-sized sandwiches, and Fitz on 4th are both on this iconic street. Two streets over, on Second Street, is Lucky's Last Chance, a great hangout spot for locals who call themselves gourmet burger connoisseurs.

Queen Village is a paradise for coffee lovers. If you are looking for an industrial-chic cafe featuring espresso drinks and teas served at communal tables, stop by Shot Tower Coffee. A robust and original brick veneer adds an artsy character to Red Hook Coffee and Tea, another great establishment to grab a cup of coffee to-go. 
Shopping in Queen Village must include a visit to Moon & Arrow. This socially-responsible establishment sells vintage and handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, and home furnishings. Its impressive list of unique items packed into an ideal Queen Village storefront gives Moon & Arrow a ton of fun, charm, and character! Afterward, stop by Head House Books or Brickbat Books to find your next best read.
