Living In Tacony

One Of Many Regular Community Events

Tacony is a wonderful Philadelphia neighborhood located 8 miles Northeast of Central Philadelphia along the banks of the Delaware River. With nearly 30,000 residents, Tacony is primarily a residential neighborhood with diverse housing types. From our historic Victorian homes to our early-20th-century, modest brick rowhouses or more modern post-war rowhouses, we have a home for every family’s needs.

Tacony is rich in amenities and growing! It has ample parks and open space, a growing commercial corridor, and rich community institutions. Among many highlights is our historic Carnegie library, which is undergoing a three-year renovation and expansion to make our great neighborhood library an even more valuable resource for area residents. Our local businesses are growing stronger and in number every year, providing residents with delicious hoagies, expert computer help, highly skilled dental care, and everything in between.

We are located along the Delaware River and boast many beautiful remnants of our historic industrial heyday. We are also conveniently located close to Center City Philadelphia, with great access to Interstate 95, the SEPTA Trenton Line (which makes stops at all three downtown stations), and the Tacony-Palmyra bridge, which connects the City of Philadelphia to Burlington, County New Jersey.
