Dickinson Narrows is a neighborhood in South Philadelphia. This neighborhood extends from Washington Avenue to Hoffman Street and from 4th Street to 6th Street. The area is often referred to as Philadelphia’s "newest old” neighborhood. Dickinson Narrows was originally settled by post World War II Jewish Immigrants. But by the 1950s, most immigrants had moved into the suburbs. The area's Jewish heritage can still be seen today, specifically in the mural near Mifflin Square. The area’s renowned public park, Dickinson Square, lies on the east side of the neighborhood, actually out of the borders of Dickinson Narrows. Like surrounding neighborhoods, Dickinson Narrows is often combined and confused with its adjacent neighborhoods such as Pennsport and Queen Village.
