Default Leighland in regards to the pm SD vs.Philly

Well good luck leighland, it doesn't sound like you are enjoying yourself very much.I hope things get better for you in the time that you here. Have you considered moving a little further out from the mainline. Places like West Chester,Westtown,Exton ,Chester Springs,Downingtown? Its much more laid back and pleasant.Although I think a combination of Madison Ave,Honolulu and the Las Vegas strip wouldnt be enough for you to compare to SD.

Good luck.

Default Leighland I wasnt offended

No one living in Philly is going to be offended by your opinions or take them personally. We might disagree with your opinions but the area stands on its own. It doesnt have to apologize if its not a newer cookie cutter version of another city. Keep in mind this area is 300 years old and its not in vogue here to go knocking down history, we're very proud of our history. You aren't going to have an 85,000 sq.foot supermarket in Bryn Mawr or Villanova, thats just not going to happen. Not because those towns cant afford it rather because it doesn't fit into the surroundings.These towns have been around 250 years longer than Genuardis and Acme. If you feel you are stuck here move further out(15 miles west or north) where the newer areas are growing.


Best of luck to you.

shannaybannanay thanks for kind words. If you search craigslist try Center City neighborhoods which are Art Museum,Rittenhouse Square,Logan square,Fitler Square,Spring Garden,Washington West,Old City,Soceity HIll. $1500 bucks gets you a 2 BR in some of those neighborhoods and 1 BR in Rittenhouse Square+ Soceity Hill). If you intended to to rent a house I personally would look into the suburbs or NW Philly(Chestnut Hill- West Mount Airy-). Thats just my opinion.

Heres a website to a brand new midrise apartment complex in Logan Square-Art Museum(neighborhood of Center City) along Schuylkill River Park. SRP is a fantastic recreation trail that goes from center City all the way up through East falls and eventually Chestnut Hill. Studios are about $1400. 1 BR is listed for $1800 but it wouldnt hurt to try and negotiate in a soft market.

If you think you are going to move to the city then Center City should be your #1 option imo.

Default back on topic

I live in Fishtown, an outsider who moved in four years ago as part of the ongoing wave of gentrification, and can tell you it's a nice place to live and still improving. It's quiet, safe and still shockingly affordable given it's convenience to the core of Center City (10 minutes). If you feel you cannot live without cutesy shops and restaurants nearby this probably isn't the neighborhood for you. I like the cutesy shops and restaurants and find I'm still able to afford them because I live here versus one of the over-priced Center City neighborhoods.
