Food Markets
Grocery shopping is incredibly convenient. On our lobby level you'll find Klein’s Market, a well stocked, family-owned business. Just two blocks away is a 62,000-square-foot Whole Foods. During warmer months, a farmers’ market across the street from the Eastern State Penitentiary showcases locally grown produce, baked goods and other local food products. Want more? A Trader Joe’s and a flagship Giant located at Riverwalk are just a short bus ride away and both offer free parking, too.
Almost all you need for daily living is close at hand. Within six blocks, you'll find a Target, a hardware store; post office; dry cleaner; liquor store and more. With a Wells Fargo bank and our own Parkway pharmacy in the building, errands are quick and easy.

Close by, the very popular Schuylkill River Trail follows the river's banks from the heart of the city to Valley Forge National Park and beyond. The ambitious bicyclist can easily explore miles of trails within Philadelphia’s vast park system or follow the tranquil, lushly wooded Wissahickon Creek all the way to Chestnut Hill and Montgomery County.
Walking / Jogging
Sharing the path with bicyclists, casual walkers and serious runners also enjoy the Schuylkill River Trail, sometimes traveling towards the most recent addition - a boardwalk that extends over the river. Across the street from The Philadelphian, strollers wander through the Art Museum's outdoor sculpture garden and the nearby Azalea Garden, with its gorgeous variety of azaleas and rhododendrons.
Rowing and Paddling
From long dragon boats to one-oar sculls, the boats plying the river offer yet another opportunity for The Philadelphian's residents to enjoy the natural resources close at hand. Those of us who do not row can still watch the racing shells that launch from the eleven Victorian boathouses on picturesque Boathouse Row.  Next to the human paddlers, the ducks and cormorants go about the serious business of finding their next meal.
When you live at The Philadelphian your neighbors are the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Rodin Museum, the Barnes Foundation and more.  In other words, you are mere steps away from the Parkway Museum District.  Built over one hundred years ago to resemble the Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway connects The Philadelphian to renowned art museums, educational institutions and public artwork.

Events on the Parkway
From pop-up beer gardens to outdoor movie nights, a variety of events make the Benjamin Franklin Parkway a happening place during the summer. On most nice weekends, walk-a-thons bring out people of all ages to take part or to cheer. The Fourth of July draws residents to their windows and balconies to watch the fireworks, just across the street above the Art Museum.
