21st + Walnut is a pretty good spot actually. By May when the weather starts to turn nicer and there are thousands and thousands of people walking the streets I think you will come to enjoy living in Philadelphia.

If you had asked about N. 5th Street you would have gotten the thumbs down immediately.

2100 Walnut is an ideal location for your work,great restaurants + theaters nearby,very vibrant area, U.of Penn is a couple blocks away, theres an awesome biking+ roller blading trail a couple blocks away along the river, and theres virtually no serious crime( but keep your car doors locked just in case. And there is a serial toe sucker on the loose that needs mentioning-sadly a true event)

I think you did pretty well with that location. Maybe if you paint your apartment and spruce it up it will seem a little nicer.

Hello Tony,
We are in the same situation that you are in, and are looking to something much Like Brookline. So far West Chester seemed to be much like Brookline but my be to far west for your needs. I was there for a day and it had a nice feel to it, imagine Brookline with out Coolidge Corner, at least from what I have seen thus far.

Can you share your impressions of what you saw and compare to and compare to an area in the greater Boston. We have lived in Brookline and loved it and hope we can find a similar location.

I wish you the best of luck, and hope all goes well,

21st and Walnut is a great location. You are just two blocks from Trader Joes, convenient to transportation as well. Good luck.

Boston and Philadelphia are both colonial cities, that have a rich history. art plays a crucial role in both of the cities. boston and philadelphia housing costs about the same, and offers basicly the same types of housing. the only difference is that philadelphia is almost three times the size of boston population wise, so you may need to get used to that change but over all you should make a good transition from boston to philadelphia.enjoy the city of brotherly love!

Nothing to get used to. Philly's population is 3 times the size of population only in city limit, which means absolutely nothing as Boston has a tiny footprint. Metrowise, Boston is about on par with Philadelphia population wise. So, you should not see any difference. Good luck.
