Point Breeze Philadelphia Homes for Sale

Point Breeze is a remarkable neighborhood in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The neighborhood roughly bounded by 25th Street to the west, Broad Street to the east, Washington Avenue to the north and Mifflin Street to the south. Neighboring communities include Southwest City Center to the north and Passyunk Square to the east. This charming community has an interesting history that dates back to the 1860s when oil refining was the major business in the area. Oil that had been drilled in western Pennsylvania was processed in Point Breeze, shipped down the Schuylkill River to Delaware, and then out to sea.

The area of Point Breeze was settled predominately by working-class European-Jewish immigrants, followed by Irish and Italian immigrants. African Americans began moving into the area in the 1930s in what was known as “The Great Migration,” as many moved from the south to escape Jim Crow laws. Over the years, Point Breeze has gone through revitalization and gentrification with numerous businesses moving into the area and focused efforts being made by local organizations to beautify this delightful community. Today residents enjoy great shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation opportunities, as well as excellent schools run by the School District of Philadelphia. All in all, Point Breeze is a beautifully diverse community with a long list of features and amenities sure to impress even the most discerning of homebuyers.
