Friends of Rittenhouse Square
This swanky and attractive neighborhood is home to some of the most prestigious condominium buildings and townhomes in the city. Rittenhouse Square generally encompasses the area between Walnut and Lombard Streets and between 16th and 21st Streets. Rittenhouse
Square is one of the five original open-spaced parks planned by William Penn. Its name stems from Philadelphia astronomer, David Rittenhouse and its main attraction, Rittenhouse Square Park, is one of the most beloved spots in the city. After a building
boom in the 1850’s, Rittenhouse became home to Philadelphia’s aristocracy. Today, Rittenhouse is the site of flower and produce markets, art exhibits and performances, and is home to much of the shopping, dining, and night life you’ll ever need in Philadelphia.
Rittenhouse Square Park is one of the hottest spots in the city—a perfect place to visit any time of year!
