what's "cheap" though? $1000?

I mean you can find apartments right downtown for the cheap, but there is usually a reason.

For instance this one is $950, but the fact they had to write "has ceiling fans" means that there is definitely no AC: https://www.zillow.com/homes/for_ren...43_rect/15_zm/

I like living here. Lots of good restaurants, cultural events, etc.

I think you would like Providence. They have Waterfire, shown in one of the photos. Also look up the late Buddy Cianci. Some people revere him.

Philly is another good suggestion. Hunt down a poster on City-Data named Clark Park. He knows more about Philadelphia than Ben Franklin, and he'll give you good info.

Yes I can afford $950....

You definitely have to pay more living in a city that is exciting in many parts of the country lately it seems .
Here in the Midwest I had a studio for $550........ but it is boring living here...... St Paul, MN

If I got a good job in Providence I would consider it.

I just automatically thought Boston would be the obvious commute for someone living in Providence for a corporate job. Or working at a University perhaps.

Well farther south of Lex Market gets nice. And obviously Inner Harbour too. You could check out Fells Point, Federal Hill and Locust Point for other nice neighborhoods kinda downtown-y and close to downtown. I mean everything around the harbor is infill-ing very nicely.

There's a lovely little university in Providence named Brown. Perhaps you've heard of it.

Some people probably do make that commute. My niece lived in New Bedford until recently. She made use of both Providence and Boston, but she had to travel throughout New England and NY State for work. Now she works in Boston and lives in Framingham.

Another thing to consider is that the NE places are a little colder than Philadelphia will be.

They're about to tear down the current Lexington market and build a new one. Hopefully that will clean up that area.
