What we are all about
Strawberry Mansion is a neighborhood of rich tradition and history that is located in Lower North Philadelphia and is adjacent to East Fairmount Park. It’s boundaries include Allegheny West to the north; the Amtrak Northeast Corridor Line and the North Central neighborhood to the east; Brewerytown to the south; and Fairmount Park along the Schuylkill River to the west.
In addition to its rich culture, another prominent Strawberry Mansion asset is its housing stock. The typical housing stock consists of 2-3 story, single-family row homes. The streetscapes are rarely monotonous as the ornate cornices, Victorian turrets, bay windows, and unique paint expresses the personalities of the current inhabitants as well as link today’s residents with the neighborhood’s history and past dwellers.
The Strawberry Mansion Community Development Corporation’s mission is to promote sustainable revitalization through residential, commercial and economic development, historic preservation and the empowerment of the Strawberry Mansion Community. Although troubled by urban blight in the past, today the neighborhood is experiencing urban renewal at a tremendous pace. The SMCDC was formed to drive this renewal, empower the residents and preserve the richness of the neighborhood.
