Our Coverage Area

Rittenhouse Square is the public park and neighborhood located on the west side of Center City area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  It’s considered the Tribeca meets Union Square meets Time Square of Philly, that is, the upscale area where shopping, eating, and people gawking takes place.  

There are a number of GREAT resources, blogs, and influencers who represent Philly. However, it’s a huge area divided into many sections ranging from Old City (east Center City and similar to Soho) to Fishtown (the Williamsburg of Philly), and more. Hence Rittenhouse Ramblings – an informal guide devoted to this area.

The Team

Your Editor-in-Chief & Guide: Zohray Brennan

I’m a writer, content marketer, media maven, an executive’s wife, a girl mom, a dog mom, an Eagles fan, and an ex-New Yorker who loves Philly for itself, and not just for the Eagles.

I also happen to be a HUGE fan of city living, for all the good and the bad. It offers an energy that’s hard to find anywhere else. Having moved to Rittenhouse in 2021, I found it challenging to find information pertaining to just this area which is a microcosm in itself. It’s one of the busiest neighborhoods in Philly for restaurants, shopping, fitness, and luxury real estate. Hence the launch of this blog in July 2023 as an informal guide to all that’s in Rittenhouse.
