Northern Liberties continues to be my favorite neighborhood in Philadelphia. Yuppifying a little too quickly, rental and home owner prices are beginning to rise rapidly, but still the neighborhood offers a helping of hipsters, artists, gen x and millennial types. The shops and bars and restaurants are a great attraction with places like Standard Tap leading the late night parade.... More

Northern Liberties is a great area of the city, and is one of our favorite areas. There are a lot of bars and restaurants in the area, including space where they host outdoor movies and sports, as well as concerts. There is a large parking area nearby if you cannot find street parking.

We participated in the Northern Liberties Food Tour through XperienceDays. We did not know what to expect, but being foodies we decided it was worth a try. I must say, it was a wonderful afternoon. Great food for a great price, good company and our tour guide, Adam, was awesome! There are quite a few little gems in this area... More

Northern liberties is ok. I live at the piazza Schimdt and I get the good, the bad and the ugly. The apartments are priced sky high, on average $1900 for a two bedroom, but they are new, beautiful and very spacious. Entertainment is cool, I'm more into hip hop and R&b/soul ANd this neighborhood does not cater to that at... More

I love Northern Liberties. There are so many different bars, clubs & restaurants to choose from. Parking can be a bit of an issue but sometimes you can get lucky. I'd like to see them add some more upper class places to this area though!

What's not to love about this quaint little gem in Northern Liberties? My favorite day in Northern Liberties consists of coffee at Honey's Sit'n Eat, then walking around the Piazza, a beer at Standard Tap, and tapas at Bar Ferdinand.

Just north of center city is No Libs. Home to a lot of good restaurants like N3rd and The Standard Tap. If you walk north on 2nd street, you will run into The Piazza (?) just below Girard Ave. Shops and restaurants are there also. Neighborhood is safer than it used to be but remember you are in a big... More

Northern Liberties is a great gem. Love the shoppes and the restaurants. I don't get here that often as it is "off the beaten path" relative to my travels; but I am very happy this gem exists!

Northern Liberties was one of the industrial areas of Philadelphia, today many former factories and warehouses are being redeveloped into condos as are many new developments as well. It has the potential to be a nice area but is still very far off. Much of Northern Liberties is still abandoned, run down, and dirty. Save the time and spend it... More
