Northeast Philadelphia is a sizable section of Philadelphia with nearly ¼ of the total population residing here. Bound by the Delaware River to the east, Bucks County to the north, Montgomery County to the west, and Adams Avenue to the south.
There are certainly areas of Northeast Philly that are considered the “Near Northeast” meaning closer to Center City. Among these areas are Fishtown, Kensington, and Port Richmond. Cottman Avenue is the unofficial line that separates “near” and “far” Northeast. We’ve included these in our Outskirts of Town neighborhood section since they are just right outside of Center City.
The population’s large majority is represented by working class Irish Americans, along with heavy Polish, German, Jewish, Italian, and Russian influence. Of course, many areas in the “near” Northeast have had an influx of immigrants and young urban professionals who can easily commute into Center City.

Modern day homebuyers are highly attracted to the unique and close knit community atmosphere of these various neighborhoods, each with a style all their own.
