Manayunk was once an industrial mill town on the Schuylkill River and one of Philadelphia’s manufacturing centers. By the 1980s, this borough northwest of Center City had become a hardscrabble town with vacant storefronts in its business district. Thanks to the efforts of some urban pioneers who opened quality restaurants and started a schedule of annual events to bring people to the town, the area has come back in a big way. Now a hip, arts-oriented enclave known for boutiques, bars and nightlife  and blocks of modest rowhouses set on some very steep hills, Manayunk draws thousands of visitors each year.

For about the past 20 years, Manayunk has attracted younger, more professional home buyers, no doubt drawn to the energy of this revitalized area. In addition to rowhouses, some factories have been converted to loft-style living spaces. Prices are a bit more reasonable than in Center City neighborhoods, and commuting to the city is relative easy via Septa’s train and bus service. The train ride to Center City is about 30 minutes on the Manayunk- Norristown  line.
