Queen Village

Queen Village is a neighborhood in Center City, Philadelphia.

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.
