Washington Square

Neighborhood Details

The Lippincott

Washington Square is an open-air, historic park situated in close proximity to the Avenue of the Arts, many of the city’s hospitals, Independence Hall and Society Hill. Built as one of William Penn’s 5 original squares, the majority of the buildings surrounding Washington Square were built for publishing houses and many well-respected members of the publishing industry, including The Farm Journal — the oldest farm publication in the U.S. — and the W.B. Saunders Publishing Company.

Today, most of the buildings surrounding The Square are home to luxury condominium and rental buildings, boutique retailers and world-class dining.
