"Clean and green"

Wister is a residential neighborhood located in the Northwest section of Philadelphia. It is adjacent to Roxborough and Chestnut Hill and is bound by Germantown Avenue to the south, Stenton Avenue to the north, Belfield Avenue to the east and East Chelten Avenue to the west.
Due to its close proximity with Chestnut Hill, Wister is a fairly expensive area to live in. It offers many beautiful houses with unique architecture and also a clean and green environment. It is also one of the many historic parts of Philadelphia and features many buildings built in the 1800’s.
Wister is spread out, so it is hard to get around if you only have a bike or walk everywhere. This is why it is necessary to get a car or take public transportation. It will otherwise take you forever to run errands or get to the nearest bar or restaurant.
Wister is a lovely area that is perfect for families and elderly residents. It has a vibrant environment and close-knit community with clean streets and well-maintained houses. It is also a great area for young professionals or anybody who wishes to live in an upscale part of Philadelphia without the noise and dirt.
