Snow Day Rittenhouse Square – Plus Views from a Apartments on the Snowy Square

Tuesday was Philadelphia’s first snow day. As an added bonus the Christmas tree’s around town were still up so I headed out the door to capture a few of my favorite sites.

 These two lovely people were visiting from Australia. They were spending 3 days in Philly, then were headed for 3 additional days in NYC for sightseeing.
 Then I headed for Rittenhouse Square. Every time it snows I hit up the square, it’s definitely one of my favorite spots. This year the tree was the talk of the town. It wasn’t quite the same robust tree as it had been in year’s gone by.
 But it was still as pretty, and the residents still shared their love with the tree adorning it with homemade ornaments, and tinsel. The tree was in all it’s glory yesterday when I took these shots. I think it was one of the prettiest trees ever.

 I called Arielle at Allan Domb Real Estate (he advertises with me)  and asked if they had any apartments on the Square, cause who doesn’t want to see the Square from above.  I do. First we went over to the Wellington.

 with an amazing view of the square looking Northwest.
I love the parquet floors and spacious rooms. It captured the old world charm that I imagined apartments on the Square would have.


OK this is exactly the kind of photo I imagine of always taking of the square at dusk, on a snowy day with the holiday lights a glow. #BucketList
