What neighborhoods in Philly is best suited for yuppie couple in 40s, no kids, with dog? Need to be close to dog park and restaurants, coffee shop, etc, and UNDER 30-minute commute to Center City. Looking to buy 2 bedroom with some form of outdoor space and garage. Prefer a home instead of an apartment building.

I think you mean you are looking for a city neighborhood that suits you and I think Fitler Square or Graduate Hospital areas would be ideal - zip code 19146. I looked up houses on realtor.com that would be great and as you didn't mention prices, here are three. The first one is everything in deluxe city living with your garage and your roof deck and a block to the dog park and couple blocks to Trader Joe's and the Schuylkill Trail to jog and many nice restaurants and coffee shops. Everything. But pricey. The others are good but farther from dog park and not quite as wonderful.

Mod cut- no realtor links please.
Why commute to the city when you can live in the city. I love to look up real estate - real estate porn someone called it - ha ha. Anyway, hope this helps.

If you are dinks(double income/ no kids) is there an actual reason you want to be in the suburbs? Your amenities says "urban living", imo.

There is a form on the top of the thread. Please complete this. Understanding your budget and what you are looking for. Urban/walkable v, Suburban Walkable with transit access is key.

Budget is #1.

Philadelphia is a big city. And different price points can get you different things, depending on what you are looking for.

I don't think they want to be in the suburbs. The OP and thread title reference "Philly neighborhoods", which I took to mean in the city. The 30 min commute time only really excludes the far outer reaches of Chestnut Hill or the far NE maybe, but it really sounds like they want to be somewhere actually in town, either in CC itself or possible somewhere like Northern Liberties.
