"Nice Older Area"
Gowen Ave has an interesting mix of homes. It goes from Germantown Ave to Mansfield Ave and the houses change from very large, old mini-mansions to smaller single homes that were built in the 1950s. Gowen has lots of trees and natural plants so it's lovely to drive or walk around the neighborhood. There are two churches on the street, one is at the corner of Gowen and Stenton Aves and the other is a block from Germantown Ave near the train station. Almost all of the homes have nice sized yards, which would be perfect for young children.
