Hi,
I am a student at Drexel University and I currently live near 45th and Locust st. I got a lot of help from this forum when I first moved to Philadelphia from Orlando. I have been in Philly for about three months now. Currently I am renting a room in one of the row houses.

My wife, who was working in Florida, is moving to Philly in May. So I am currently looking for a 2Br/1Ba apartment around Philly for around $1000. I do not mind living in the suburbs if the commute to Drexel is not too crazy. I am not too particular about nightlife or shopping, but safety is a must since both me and my wife will be at work till late and will be using public transport. Could you please recommend some neighborhoods/ suburbs in Philadelphia that would fit my requirements?

Do you think my rent expectation is unrealistic? If so I am going to look for a 1Br/1Ba apartment in the same price range.

Thanks

It seemed that it isn't strictly impossible to get that in university city but the majority of 2/1's were mostly in gradient areas of the city. One thing to consider is it may actually be more expensive to live in the suburbs considering transportation costs. Safety by suburbs comes at an extreme social life cost, which has nothing to do with nightlife. Most high schools are more dangerous than a decent philly neighborhood. Also city living is good for marriages.

lol because the girl gets bored in the suburbs and then blames in on the guy. In the city she has fun and blames it on the guy . You'd have to study psychology to understand how we unknowingly and undeservingly credit (for better or worse) nearby things simply because they are nearby.
