That’s Mount Airy in a nutshell. A community in northwest Philadelphia that has been cited as one of the ten most integrated communities in America with active community and business associations. Part of the old German Township since 1683, it began as an agricultural area. By the mid-19th century, population started to thrive and homes were built that rivaled in architectural design those of any other neighborhood. The 1890’s and the 1920’s building booms gave Mount Airy great Victorians, center hall colonials, and hundreds of row homes and twins. Today they represent a solid housing stock that turns over quickly when available. The recently established Quintessence Theater is a well-regarded highlight of the Friday and Saturday night scene along Germantown Avenue.
