Along the banks of the Schuylkill River and just over the iconic Falls Bridge

is a place where more than 11,000 Philadelphians call home.

Think of East Falls as an urban village, with fertile ground for business and life. It’s the genuine article, a place of civic leaders and corner store operators; educators and entrepreneurs; creative class and working class. One thing is for sure, it’s the perfect spot to have a business, make a home and visit.



The story of East Falls spans over 300 years. Once an industrial community known for textile mills and catfish dinners, East Falls has been re-imagined and today stands as a vibrant neighborhood at the gateway to the Northwest Philadelphia metro area.


East Falls is nestled between the Philadelphia Art Museum and Manayunk along scenic Kelly Drive, and is less than 30 minutes from the Philadelphia Airport, King of Prussia and Cherry Hill, NJ. For travel times and directions, click here.

GO Outdoors

walkers, runners, and bikers per week use the River Trail along Kelly Drive, steps away from the eateries of the Riverfront Business District. East Falls is also home to a vibrant Farmers’ Market and hopping beer garden from May to November.
