East Falls is a neighborhood in the Northwest section of Philadelphia, on the east bank side of the now submerged Schuylkill River cataracts, the ‘Falls of the Schuylkill’ that became submerged as the Schuylkill Canal and Fairmount Water Works projects were completed in 1822.
East Falls overlooks the multi-use recreational path of Fairmount Park along Kelly Drive, and is desirable for its central location, an easy commute to Center City, with easy access to several major roadways and public transportation. East Falls continues to develop, with new housing, retail space and recreation centers in production. It features two train stations, a number of bars and restaurants, and illustrious mansions as well as some recently renovated housing that continues to increase in value.
FUN FACT: East Falls is best known as the childhood home of Grace Kelly, actress and Princess of Monaco, who grew up in a house at 3901 Henry Avenue.
