Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My sister and i were staying down the street from Headhouse Square and were fortunate enough to visit the Sunday morning farmers market. Lots of one of a kind vendors and great products for reasonable prices. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly- one of my favorite things we did in the city!

We recently went to Philly/South Jersey on a vacation & went down to the Headhouse Square/New Market area. We parked on the road & walked around & I was shocked at how little was still there!

There used to be great restaurants & shops & things to do, but now...almost nothing!

I know I'm dating myself, but the old buildings that used to house New Market ARE COMPLETELY GONE! There's a huge open field that you can see right down to I-95 where the building were! I know New Market hasn't been around IN YEARS, (It was soooo cool back in the day!), but the whole area is lousy! South Street was lacking it's old appeal & Headhouse Square is just boring!

To top it all off, my old hang out, David Mann Audio, is now a CVS!!!

Time sure has taken this place down!!

So many restaurants and attractions to see. Fun to be in part of old city with cobblestone streets and historic buildings. Parking took a little time but if you manage the one way streets you can usually find a spot and they are using the new kiosk that give you a ticket stub for your car. Parking only cost us 5.00 for a few hours. Also close to south street and penns landing so there is a lot to do! Crowds are polite on the streets although they get a little rowdy later in the night. Felt very safe.
