Olde Kensington is a neighborhood located in the Kensington section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Olde Kensington is north of Northern Liberties, south of Hartranft, east of Ludlow, and west of Fishtown. The boundaries of the neighborhood are roughly between Cecil B Moore Ave (north), Girard Ave (south), Front St (east) and 6th St.(west).
After World War II, many neighborhoods in Philadelphia experienced a long period of decline, deindustrialization, and residential abandonment. In recent years, however, Olde Kensington has been increasingly gentrified, following a similar pattern observed in adjacent Northern Liberties and Fishtown. Although some industrial activity has continued along the American Street Corridor, a historic location for heavy industry, a growing number of formerly vacant factories are being turned into lofts, condos, and artistic workspaces.
The zip code for the area is 19122. Also, there are two associations that serve the neighborhood: the Kensington South Neighborhood Advisory Council (KSNAC) and Olde Kensington Neighbors Association (OKNA). KSNAC’s community meeting is on the 1st Monday of every month.View The Market Report
