Kensington



Kensington's low rents have led to a profusion of hip bars, as well as a flourishing brewery scene. The neighborhood's first craft brewer, Philadelphia Brewing Company, is set in a restored 19th-century brewery site. Frankford Avenue is a thriving hub of art galleries and performance spaces. Showcasing quirky parade floats, the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival is a popular spring event.
