Though the large medical institution that gave this south-of-Center City swath its name is no longer in operation, Graduate Hospital — or “G-Ho,” to fans of brevity — has solidified a reputation independent of its common moniker.

South Street West is the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare; it’s clean, well-lit and extremely pedestrian-friendly thanks to a vibrant entrepreneurial energy coming from the neighborhood’s restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and more.

Characterized by a mix of single-family homes new and old and thriving places of worship, it’s a remarkably kid-friendly place (just look at the stroller-filled sidewalks), but Graduate Hospital also has the distinction of possessing some of the best neighborhood bars in the area, from long-running institutions to gastropubby newcomers.

The stretch of South Street east of Broad has long been considered a draw for out-of-towners, but Graduate Hospital’s western half is on the serious come-up thanks to ambitious restaurateurs and shop owners
