Center City Map

Forming the core of civic, commercial, and residential life since Philadelphia’s seventeenth-century founding, Center City has been a continually evolving experiment in urban living and management. Consisting of the roughly rectangular area bounded by Vine Street at the north, South Street to the south, the Schuylkill at the west and the Delaware River at the east, Center City occupies the territory of the original city plan for Philadelphia but remains a place where diverse residents and numerous visitors meet to live, work, learn, and play.
