Hello!

I am currently living in Nebraska, but will be moving to the Philadelphia area after I graduate from college. I was just offered a position in Radnor, PA.

What would be some good neighborhoods to look for housing in? I would like to live in a younger area with other young professionals nad things to do, but potentially be close to Radnor, or close to public transportation that will take me to Radnor.

How much should I expect to pay in rent a month?

Any ideas or suggestions for housing and neighborhoods would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Check Conshohocken and areas along the Main Line like Ardmore, Bryn Mawr and Narberth. Lots of apartments along Montgomery Ave and Lancaster Ave that would be convenient to Radnor and also to the city. I'd suggest Manayunk, but then you'd be paying city wage tax.

I second Conshy; full of young people and a short drive to Radnor. I wouldn't recommend anywhere on the Main Line though. It's a wonderful place to grow up, but there isn't a whole lot to offer young, 20-something post-grads. Most of the young people who live on their own are in either college or grad school.

King of Prussia/Valley Forge, Conshohocken,Bryn Mawr,Ardmore, Haverford are all good recommendations. Radnor is surrounded by a number of colleges/universities.

Villanova
St Josephs
Bryn Mawr
Haverford
Rosemont
Harcum
Eastern
Cabrini

Valley Forge National Park is only 15 minutes from Radnor.

Center City Philly is a great place for young professsionals and if you get the chance you should visit occassionally. Its a 20-25 minute train ride from Radnor to CC. Home to Univ Penn,Drexel,Temple,and numerous specialty venues of higher learning. Great culture, shopping and restaurants/bars.Awesome recreational River Trail(Schuylkill Banks). One of the best downtowns in the usa.


Good luck
