Heyyy y’all... sooooo I have moved to PA a few days ago, and am looking to settle down the in Philly area. I love y’all’s city, and would like suggestions from locals on where to rent and eventually buy. I have a small child, so kid friendly is my priority. I’m from a city where there are shootings everyday and bystanders get hit all the time.. That’s pretty much my only concern. I love the city life, but I’m open to all suggestions/advice about the city and its areas.

Thank u.

Welcome to Pennsylvania!

There are so many great neighborhoods in the city and surrounding suburbs. So it can be hard to make generalized suggestions without a little bit more info from you.

Here is a link to a sticky to fill out which can help the locals guide you on different neighborhoods.

Having no idea of budget I would suggest Chestnut Hill, West Mount Airy or if you can swing it budget-wise Society Hill-Queen Village. If just outside the city works for you, check out Wynnewood or Elkins Park.

I'm gong to second rowhomecity and recommend that you fill out the questionnaire that appears as a sticky on this thread.

I will, however, put in a good word for Mt. Airy on general principle.

Sounds like a fake post. Also, I'd take it easy on the whole Y'all talk. It's Philly not the deep south. You get your a*s kicked speaking like you're from Mayberry USA in many parts of Philly.

Is this a joke? You will most certainly not get your ass kicked for saying "ya'll" in Philly. Now, saying "Go Cowboys!" might be a different story.

Just curious as to whether you work, and where that might be? That could help with suggestions about where you and your little one would live. (and budget and all kinds of real things).
