Hi everyone!

I will be moving from Milwaukee to take a job in the Ambler, PA area starting in July, I have been to the area once before for my final interview and wasn't able to see much of the area besides the Amber area. I’m moving to the area to start a new job and will be graduating in May.

I’m interested in renting and being around others in their mid to late-twenties, I would like to live in an urban area, but I realize that due to rush hour traffic to Ambler that might make my life very difficult. I don't have a preference between a hi-rise or walk up, I’m looking for something in the $1,400 to $1,800/month range. Also I’m looking for a place that I could also park my car.

I’m single (ladies ), no pets, and would prefer a busier area. I would like to be close to a freeway since I will be working in the burbs, I would like to live in an area that has a good variety of bars & restaurants in the area.

Looking forward to becoming part of your city!

Manayunk, though if your job site is near the train you could think about center city. 1400 is enough for a very nice rental in either spot, but especially in Manayunk. You could probably afford to garage your car too.

Glenside may be a decent choice as well. The Keswick Avenue area offers decent off-hours options and is within closer striking distance of Center City (aka downtown) including convenient commuter rail access.

Ambler itself is nice enough. The downtown area is interesting. Granted, neither it nor Glenside are suburban single hotbeds - nowhere on that side of Philly really is - but both areas could tide you over well enough until the weekend comes.

Conshohocken might work for you as well. Not "urban" but full of "just out of college" to "just married and don't have kids yet" types. Provides good highway access, good train access to Center City, and is only about five miles or so from Ambler via Butler Pike.
