Northern Liberties, like most Philadelphia neighborhoods, is mostly made up of rowhomes. Just north of Old City and south of Fishtown, this cool area has established itself as a competitor of sought-after real estate. 3-story new construction rowhomes, condominiums and apartment complexes are being built frequently to meet the demand of the growing need for renters and buyers looking to stretch their dollar for ‘new’. Neighborhood attractions include The Piazza, also known as the Schmidt’s Commons — a European-style open space surrounded by boutiques, restaurants and bars. The Standard Tap, with their indoor and outdoor seating, has a front-row seat to the area’s nightlife, while Café La Maude’s brunch will have you coming back for more every weekend if you can tolerate waiting for a table at the popular Lebanese and French spot. North Third is a dimly-lit bar and restaurant located at 3rd and Brown, and is known for their delicious comfort food, including some of the best chicken wings in the city, as well as their tasty cocktails. NoLibs contains two public parks
