On Cathedral Road, a small portion of what was to have been a large, Gothic-style cathedral for the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania may still be seen. A lack of funds during the 1930s, however, prevented the cathedral’s completion. The apse, the only section constructed, now serves as St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. A building on the property serves as a pre-K and kindergarten center called Les Petites Cherubs. The rest of the cathedral’s property houses a non-religious retirement home, known as Cathedral Village, where many of Philadelphia’s retired social, academic, and intellectual elite reside.

Living in Andorra
Andorra borders Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Although within Philadelphia city limits, Andorra resembles suburban Montgomery County more than Philadelphia city neighborhoods. Andorra was established and developed in 1950 and therefore has stereotypically suburban characteristics, such as a strip mall, many single or double-family dwellings set back from the street, and apartment buildings on large lots with ample off-street parking. The most well-known apartment complexes are Summit Park and Henry on the Park.
Ridge Avenue, along with Henry Avenue (which splits off from Ridge Avenue in Andorra), are the major thoroughfares in Andorra. Other significant streets are Bells Mill Road, a 2-lane link through Fairmount Park and over the Wissahickon Creek which is the quickest way for cars (trucks or buses are prohibited) to reach Chestnut Hill from Andorra and Roxborough; Port Royal Avenue; and Cathedral Road.
