The neighborhood is definitely historic, Benjamin Franklin once had a printing press at the end of our street!

The smaller bedroom with queen bed is on the second floor, and the whole top third floor is a bedroom with a king size bed.

The NeighborhoodThe City of Burlington, New Jersey is a treasure trove of American history, where William Penn's Quakers founded West Jersey in 1677. Our historic district runs along the Delaware river where our extensive promenade runs from Curtin's Marina all the way to Burlington-Bristol bridge. Come see the Revell House, Isaac Collins house, the oldest library in New Jersey, and the General Ulysses S. Grant House. Getting AroundTwo blocks in the historic district will get you to the downtown light rail station. Board here for a quick trip to Philly or Trenton for a high speed rail connection to NYC! Other Things to NoteParking is on street only. This historic district is mostly historic row homes but there is plenty of parking in front of the house (first come-first served) and down Wood Street towards the river. Take a look at any online map and you can see there is lots of parking. If it really gets crazy (street fairs, car shows, boat parades and other special events) at the beginning of the block on High Street (the main street thru town) and Pearl Street (our street) the old fire station has a parking lot that's on the same block as the house. Tons of parking here too!
Our home is half a block from the Delaware river and we have a mile long or more promenade that runs along the river front. The bandstand has concerts in the summer and they show movies there as well. Bring a blanket! The elementary school has a big playground a block down Pearl Street and has all the swings, monkey bars, basketball hoops and stuff like that.
There are a few private swim clubs around and they allow day guests. One I found is in Collingswood, NJ, about 25 minutes south. They do sell day passes to the public pool at Roberts Park.
The 'River Line' light rail runs from Trenton, NJ (the capital of NJ) to Camden, NJ (connection to Philly.)
A short two block walk to the light rail north and to a NJ Transit connection in Trenton, gets you to Penn Station in NYC in a little more than an hour.
The light rail south to Camden with a connection to PATCO high speed line gets into Philly around 45 minutes or less.
