Because you know..if you watch the fresh prince..it doesn't show him getting on a plane. He just whistles for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror, if anything I could say that this cab was rare, but nah forget it yo holmes to bel air.

he pulls up to the house around 7 or 8, and yells out to the cabbie yo homes smell ya later.

So yea, thats got to be one expensive fare.

Ok..that said, I am taking a weekend trip from NYC to Philly and I want to explore some cool artsy neighborhoods that represent Philly, what it is, and what it wants to be. I am an amateur photographer, so aesthetics help. It doesn't have to be pristine, but if its ghetto..it has to be ghetto fab. So...can someone give me a heads up on the hot spots? And maybe tell me a little about yourself?

The whole CC area is mostly great. If you want ghetto just go past Drexel and Penn in West Philly and you will see some of the scummiest hoods known to man. Same is true for anything North of Girard up to cheltenham

Are you planning to come this Friday. If so, this may interest you. If not, plan to come on another first Friday:

First Friday is a unique cultural event in Philadelphia and one of the city’s most popular evening escapes. Held the first Friday of each month, rain or shine, this arts community’s “open house” brings together city dwellers and suburbanites, contemporary arts and antique collectors, aficionados of classical and contemporary design, and theater and performance buffs.
The welcoming informality of First Friday, with member organizations and galleries of the Old City Arts Association hosting receptions and exhibition openings, attracts crowds of casual browsers as well as buyers. All galleries are open to the public.

First Friday is always a festive event as Old City’s quaint streets are filled with people strolling about. The many area restaurants offer a wide variety of eating experiences from simple meals to elegant, fine dining.

On-street parking regulations are suspended by the City of Philadelphia during First Friday hours, except in safety zones.

In addition, several parking lots are convenient to the Old City Cultural District.

I think some of the more picturesque looking neighborhoods include Manayunk (nice little row homes on a steep hill with large ethnic churches intermixed into the neighborhood). Center City of course, including old city/society hill area. As well as some parts around University City and South Philly closer to the Water.
