Hi, I am 48, female and single considering a job in Center City, Philadelphia. I have a Pit/Chow puppy. I am considering apartments and townhomes in Center City and Northern Liberties. My budget is $2100. I really don't want to live in the burbs since I'm single and don't want to be isolated and bored. Can I realistically find a place to live near or in Center City with my Pit/Chow puppy? I could stay home in NYC where I know there won't be a problem finding a place with my dog but I'd like to accept this new opportunity and see what Philly has to offer.

Also, in addition to my job I am a vegan baker. Is there a market for vegan desserts in Philly? I like to sell my products in farmers markets.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I can't answer the apartment question, but I think $2100 will buy you a lot in Philly (more than in NYC), so you shouldn't have a problem finding a dog friendly place in the neighborhood you want.

From the people I've met, there is a large market for vegan desserts in Philly. I would look into the Clark Park Farmers' Market. I am not sure of the rules and regulations for selling at that market (I know that in the suburbs, there are pretty strict and stringent rules about where and how the foods for sale can be cooked/baked). But that area (West Philly/University City) may have the highest concentration of vegans in the city, and those folks go nuts for desserts they can eat. I have West Philly vegan friends for whom Babycakes (NYC) is like Mecca.

Good luck!

Your budget is fine and it is no problem finding farmer's markets. Philadelphia isn't nearly as dog friendly as New York, particularly since yours is part Pit. I am going to go ahead and take a wild guess that maybe 5% of the apartments you look at will welcome a pit bull. It won't be easy but it's not impossible. (Get used to describing your dog as a mutt)
