Queen Village is a neighborhood in Center City, Philadelphia. As early as 1830 Queen Village was a thriving community of 20,000 who made their living as weavers, tailors, ship builders, mariners or as machinists and black smiths in iron foundries. Military industry was also present, including the Shot Tower, a munitions plant built for the War of 1812 and the US Naval Ship Yard, just south of Washington Avenue. In modern times, Queen Village has upward of 300 cafes, restaurants, entertainment venues, and shops. Queen Village is home to an excess of 7000 families whose median income and home values are among the highest in the city. Queen Village is bounded by South Street to the North, Washington Avenue to the South, the Delaware River to the East, and 6th Street to the West.
