Why choose the Park to Broad neighborhoods?

“It’s a great location – easy to reach from the highways and other neighboring sections of the City – close to Fairmount Park, and 30,000 households across five neighborhoods. There are the everyday conveniences that make the neighborhood great - multiple parks and playgrounds as well as a neighborhood pool, grocery and convenience stores. We are close enough to the Parkway and Center City but have our own individual identity.” - Stephanie Pollock, co-owner, Rybread and Rybrew
