I've been scouring Trulia, Padmapper for rentals in Philly and there seems to be quite a selection at $700 and under!
Holy crap, just did a quick search for apartments under $700 on Trulia in Pittsburgh and there are TONS scattered all over the city!

That's not true. I actually saw more roaches in Philly than I've seen here in Florida, and I'm a Florida native by the way. Roaches thrive in unsanitary conditions and in cities with older sewer systems that aren't as sealed off as newer ones, plus cities like Philly have primarily attached multi-family housing where one filthy home per block can keep the roach population high no matter how clean you are.

Fairly well and is a city on the rise in terms of it's inner city redevelopment and one to watch as that evolves.

I was thinking of suggesting Cincy too but I thought since you included Columbus you had excluded Cincy intentionally. Also, bear in mind I've only been to visit twice in the past decade.

Anyway, there are tons of articles like the one Kyle posted. Cincy is getting a lot of acclaim for OTR and the new streetcar. I'm hoping to get back there sometime in the next year or so. By the looks of it, certain parts of Cincy are doing well, very vibrant, dense and desirable. I think on the whole it's in the same tier as Cleveland but there may be parts that are more "urban" than where you are in Cleveland.

Also realize that Cincinnati tallies 16,000+ ppl within a compact downtown core approx. half the size of Cleveland or Columbus, while Cleveland tallies 15,000+ ppl and Columbus 7,000+ ppl.

I thought Philly was mostly rowhouses (attached single family)?
