    New Kensington home with rooftop firepit asks $470K
    A new home in the South/Olde Kensington neighborhood sandwiched between older rowhomes has hit the market, asking $470,000. The home at 423 W. Thompson Street is just one year old, so there's nine years left on its tax abatement. The property's real showstopper is its wrap-around rooftop deck, which features a firepit and big views back toward Center City.
