The area is much like a small town, with people walking their dogs, school buses filled with kids heading home from school, doctors offices, neighbors chatting on the sidewalks, etc. Many necessities (i.e.: dry cleaners, a convenience store, churches, etc.) are located in the area, even more so creating a small town like atmosphere. The area has a sense of togetherness which some might not think too common in areas of Philadelphia. The houses range in many different sizes and styles with some set back from the sidewalks and others displaying intricate doors. The residents of the area were also very kind with many openly answering questions when asked about Queen Village and their thoughts on the area. The area seems to be pretty well established, however there are condominiums currently being built. There was also a school, William Meredith public school, being let out at the time we went. Many parents were picking up their children, while others chose to walk home.
Queen Village is also very rich with history, having been settled in the 1600’s. The area, clearly, has gone under much change since then, and from what we saw, should be a unique and interesting area to report on.
