This Wikidelphia Resource Page includes Wikidelphia pages and links to resources outside Wikidelphia, all on the topic of Philadelphia neighborhoods.

Overview

Neighborhoods in Philadelphia are not officially defined. Names and boundaries are sometimes controversial.

Wikidelphia has been building a list of Philadelphia neighborhoods under its Where category. Each Where subcategory that doesn't include a state name or abbreviation or the word "County" is a Philadelphia neighborhood. Many of the neighborhood subcategories have maps. Most have descriptions of the neighborhood's boundaries--not intended to be definitive or authoritative. Some of the neighborhood subcategories have lists of adjoining neighborhoods, enabling you to do some easy geographical exploration from one 'hood to the next.

Another list of Philadelphia neighborhoods is on Wikipedia: List of Philadelphia neighborhoods.
