I am moving to the city in May, Philadelphia. Right now I am looking at a place on South Street. Popular street in the city. I'm concerned because it is above a restaurant. It's a small ma and pa Jamaican hut. Closes at 10 on weekdays and 11 on weekends. BYOB. It's the third floor apartment as well. I didn't know if it was like dirt ballish or what to live above a restaurant. I don't want to be perceived as a bum. The inside is immaculate. That's why I like it so much. New hardwood floor, new cabinets, new counter tops. Washer/dryer. And it's really big. Exactly what I was looking for. I'm just torn cause I don't know what to do. Like I said I don't want to be looked at as a dirt ball that loves above a restaurant. Any pointers or if I am just thinking nuts...thanks in advance!

I would not consider someone who lived above a restaurant to be a dirtball. Would you?

I've always wanted to live upstairs from a business...don't think it's a dirtball situation at all.

Many years ago I lived with a restaurant behind my place. Being a light sleeper, it was horrible for me. Why? There were noisy deliveries at least twice during the wee hours of every night. Plus regular trash pick-ups at night. The deliveries produced a lot of unusual scraping and screeching noises that always woke me up. I still remember being miserable from that.

One thing to keep in mind with this location (think is 12th and South?) An Apartment building just got approved for the lot next to it and believe construction may start as early as this summer

and another katy corner I believe

Not a dirtball area at all but it might get noisy. I also agree with above. I think there may be some construction going on across the street? (That may be a few blocks down.)

Personally I couldn't live above that restaurant because I would never stop eating, but YMMV.
