ABOUT LEXINGTON

Lexington Park
 

More of a pocket than its own neighborhood, Lexington Park is designated as such by its main thoroughfare, Lexington Avenue, between Mayfair and Winchester Park. Lexington is bounded on the west by Roosevelt Boulevard, and on the north, east and south by Pennypack Park. The neighborhood is made up mostly of twin and single homes built in the years following the Second World War, and a few apartment buildings built not long thereafter. There are some commercial establishments along Rhawn Street and Roosevelt Boulevard. Convenience to the park makes it an attractive location for families with children. Lexington Park is also home to Nazareth Hospital.
