Welcome to Point Breeze
Cultural diversity and artistic energy in a hip, on-the-rise enclave.
Nestled between Graduate Hospital and Passyunk Square, Point Breeze has arrived in style as Philadelphia’s hottest neighborhood, not to mention the darling of Philly’s Best Of lists. One of the city’s trendiest spots, Point Breeze sports all the millennial hallmarks. Impeccable international cuisine, craft beers and marvels in mixology, lush green spaces, and a bevy of coffee shops keep this hip community running, while the pretty residential streets mean never having to compromise a sense of serenity.
Dating back to 1895, Point Breeze began as a haven for those migrating from Europe and the south. Over the next few decades, cultures blended to create what was then known as The Breeze, a tranquil, heritage-rich enclave of the 1960s. Today, this area has been refreshed and rebranded, featuring meticulously restored historic row homes and giving investors the opportunity of a lifetime. Perhaps the best representation of the vitality and creative energy infusing Point Breeze is a vibrant wall mural called We the Youth. The artist? None other than pop art sensation Keith Haring.
