Society Hill

Society Hill is a historic neighborhood in Center City PhiladelphiaPennsylvania with a population of 6,215 as of the 2010 United States Census.[7] Settled in the early 1680s, Society Hill is one of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Philadelphia.[8] After urban decay developed between the late 19th and early 20th centuries, an urban renewal program began in the 1950s, restoring the area and its many historic buildings.[9] Society Hill has since become one of the most expensive neighborhoods with the highest average income and second highest real estate values in Philadelphia.[10]Society Hill's historic colonial architecture, along with intelligent planning and restoration efforts, led the American Planning Association to designate it, in 2008, as one of the great American neighborhoods and a good example of sustainable urban living.[11]

The neighborhood contains one of the largest concentrations of original 18th- and early 19th-century buildings in the United States.[3][12] Society Hill is noted for its Franklin street lamps,[13][11] brick sidewalks, cobblestone and Belgian block streets bordered by two- to four-story brick rowhouses in Federal and Georgian architecture, and public buildings in Greek Revival architecture such as the Merchants' Exchange Building[note 2] and the Old Pine Street Church.[3]
