I Am Moving To Philly To Start Over After A Divorce. I Am A 37 Yr Old Blk Male,who Would Have To Survive Pay Check To Pay Check Once I Get There And Find A Job. Any Ideas Where To Find Decent Housing, Living In The Hood Is Fine As Long As I'm Not In The Middle Of A Shooting Gallery Or A Crackhouse. Also Any Tips On Good Temp Agencies Since That May Be The Fastest Way To Find Work. I Have 5yr+ Production And Manufacturing Experience In Pharmaceuticals Food And Beverage.....thank You Very Very Much For Any Info

Try looking in the Northeast. Like Tacony, Mayfair, etc. Those areas are diverse and not too expensive (and not really crime ridden....but of course all areas have their problems). As for jobs and such, try the Northeast Times, Inquirer, and the Daily News. Good luck.
