New in town

Hey all! We're looking to move to Gaskill St... Near 4th and Lombard. Tips about the area? It's considered Society Hill right?

Thanks!!
Liz

  • Have to add one more comment. Lombard was the end of Society Hill. Those lantern lights designated the area. Am an old timer.

  • The area is great, you're two blocks from either a chain grocery store (Superfresh) or a gourmet grocery store (Essene). Post office is a block away, CVS is two blocks away along with Wawa, good bus service to Center City. Washington Square/Independence Square is close by if you like sitting in parks. And of course Society Hill has beautiful streets and little pathways to vary your walk through the neighborhood.
