Living in Manayunk
Beautiful scenery. Trendy boutiques and popular restaurants. A highly rated school system. Close to the heart of the city and the surrounding suburbs. These are just a few of the reasons why Manayunk ranks high on the list of best neighborhoods to relocate to in Philadelphia. For 30 years and counting, young professionals, families and retirees alike flock to Manayunk (pronounced ma·nuh·yuhngk) to experience its unique mix of small town charm and big city vibes. If you’re looking to join this welcoming community, let us give you a brief glimpse into the wonderful world of Manayunk!
Formerly a manufacturing town located on the banks of the Schuylkill River, Manayunk began to move in its current direction in the 1980s. That’s when young professionals looking for affordable housing that was close to the city, began to fill the vacant spaces left from the manufacturing days. Manayunk’s new residents fell in love with the old town look of the buildings and streets, but craved many modern touches. As more professionals migrated to Manayunk, this former industrial town became the new home for plenty of local shops, restaurants and unique events. Now, over 30 years later, Manayunk continues its tradition as a haven for those looking to relocate to desired neighborhoods that are close to Philly and offer many of the same benefits of big city life.
One of the biggest reasons many relocate to Manayunk is its proximity to the city and its surrounding suburbs. Just eight miles away from Center City, Philadelphia, so it’s just a quick car ride away for locals. Or SEPTA’s nearby Ivy Ridge Station gets Manayunk locals to the city in a few short stops and easily connects with other forms of public transportation so they can venture to other parts of the city or suburbs like equally popular destinations Chestnut Hill and the Main Line.
Another reason so many people relocate to Manayunk: there’s always plenty to do. Take in the beautiful sights of the canal or hop in a kayak and get a workout. Shop the mom-and-pop boutiques on Main Street, grab coffee from a neighborhood vendor, or pick some locally sourced fresh fruits and vegetables at the Farmer’s Market in Pretzel Park. Recreate the old Philly Cycling Classic by biking the many hills and inclines. See national and local bands and musicians play the neighborhood venues and breweries. Enjoy fine food at the many great restaurants. No one is ever bored when they relocate to Manayunk.
