The campus, located between Girard Avenue and Diamond Streets, operates as the center from which the neighborhood radiates. The residential area stretches from 17th street east toward 9th, but with every passing year its sphere of influence extends a bit further. The primary feature that sets the Temple University area apart from nearly every other neighborhood in Philadelphia is its incredibly convenient configuration with Broad Street as the focus. This minor yet incredibly important detail makes it possible for residents to commute to and from anywhere in the city with relative ease. Whether you need to park your car, lock up your bike or catch a train or subway, all modes of egress are available within walking distance.
North Philadelphia possesses some of the greatest, hidden architecture gems the city has to offer, many which have been pristinely maintained and restored. New construction is always taking place, exemplified by all the new campus housing added in the past two years, and with all of this development, the skyline has only grown more impressive.
