ABOUT ANDORRA

Andorra is a part of Roxborough, sharing a zip code (19128) and located within the borders of the original Roxborough Township. It is bounded by Forbidden Drive to the east, Port Royal Ave to the south, and Ridge Ave to the west.

Although within Philadelphia city limits, Andorra resembles suburban Montgomery County more than Philadelphia city neighborhoods. Andorra was established and developed in 1950 and has suburban characteristics, such as a strip mall, many single or double-family dwellings set back from the street, and apartment buildings on large lots with ample off-street parking.
