Lol, no one really respects this especially in Miami. I mean perhaps maybe in "nice areas", but even then areas like downtown and such are filled with panhandlers

This guy was on a panhandling permitted street:

I gave him a dollar for a bite of his gourmet sandwich.

Just come to Philly, dress appropriately, partake in the food and culture, be aware of your surroundings and you'll be fine.
And, yeah, we can have some bad winters (the older I get, the more they hurt), but our summers, with the humidity, can be down right brutal.
Bennington Street is in Juniata, which isn't that great an area ...

Still, definitely better than Miami in that regard!

Thanks for all the suggestions!
We decided Philly it is. Although, we will be starting off in an not so good area we hope to work our way up from there. In the meantime, ill continue to do more research that way I dont feel as lost and just hope to learn, grow and live a decent life.

the summers are usually only "bad" for a month or so and even then, it's just because they are reminscent of miami and puerto rico in that month. for myself, I find there's usually a month in winter and summer where I'm just sick of the weather (heat or cold). in most years, it passes quickly. occasionally it drags on.

I disagree. We've been getting a solid two months of bad weather mixed in between May and September (which means we can have bad spings, too).
On the other hand, what's "bad" to me, may not be "bad" to you.

OP, I recently relocated to the Philadelphia metro, and I am very happy with my decision. Enjoy the city, metro, and region.

As for weather, I missed most of the winter, as I have only been here for a couple of months. But each part of the country has plus/minus in terms of weather,

not really, it was rarely below 40 last year (only used my winter coat a few times) and the summer wasn't hot. in fact, it was such a cool summer I never got tired of the heat. two years ago was a mild winter. the winters three and four years ago were quite snowy and much longer. one of those summers was pretty awful. yes, obviously your tolerance will differ. If I were from miami I would probably find 3 months of winter intolerable but none of summer particularly intolerable. I'm fine with anything between the mid 40's and mid 80's as daily highs. I have a good coat so I don't particularly hate mid 30's either, just not a fan of the polar vortex type cold.
