Another thing to consider is that the NE places are a little colder than Philadelphia will be.
I live in Minnesota and came here to help a family member but I am free to move now...so I am used to the cold but tired of looking at the grain towers here....

Want to be somewhere in which I can wear my nicer professional clothes again to work too
The work attire here is casual.. I have even seen co-workers at a prestigious university wearing sweats to work in the middle of the week.. It can be too "casual" and too relaxed here for my taste. I believe in winding down too.... but you have to have lived here to understand

having moved from other cosmopolitan, energetic, dynamic cities and living abroad.

Baltimore-proximity to DC without being DC. smaller, definitely has its issues, but has more character than DC IMO. Love Chesapeake "cuisine" personally.
Philadelphia: your thread title is pretty much the definition for Philadelphia. By far the largest of the bunch mentioned here. not everything is a rowhouse.
Providence: much smaller but also a nice city, only about 10 miles further from boston than Baltimore is from DC. winters will be much colder than the mid atlantic. OTOH, summers will be better. DC is by far the most landlocked of the bunch (Philly is an hour to "the shore") but providence is on Narragansett bay with ferry service to block island via Newport. not a long drive and even a local bus. easy to get to Nantucket and Martha's vineyard.

Connecticut cities


Stamford---It is nice it seem cranes going up everyday in city alot of young professionals, okay nightlife and bars, close to NYC 40 min train ride, 30 min by driving wouldn't recommend. The city is expensive due to close location to NYC 1 bedroom would be $1400-$1600 in city you can also do roommates paying 800 month




New Haven--It is nice in some areas neighborhoods like Downtown, East Rock, Wooster Square are livable it is college city home to Ivy league Yale and few other colleges. The city has decent nightlife and bars alot of young people in city. New Haven is last stop and hub for Metro North east of Stamford to Grand Central, There Amtrak trains to Boston and D.C




Hartford- The capital of Connecticut Downtown area been improving past years alot of Insurance, Medical job, state jobs in Downtown area. The best skyline in CT and one of best for under 200,000

Downtown area in New Haven got better, Stamford is better but expensive also can try Norwalk.
