Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

St. Albans Place, Graduate Hospital

St. Albans Place, Graduate Hospital

In the up-and-coming Graduate Hospital neighborhood, St. Albans Place is a pedestrian-only redbrick street with lovely fenced-in gardens running down the middle and historically designated homes along both sides. Built in the late 1870s, the street was laid out as a garden with granite curbs, three cast iron fountains and an iron fence. Today, flowers fill the fountains, and neighbors maintain the garden. The street may be most known for its role in The Sixth Sense, written and directed by Philly-proud M. Night Shyamalan.
