One of the apartments I am looking into renting is the 7400 Apartments on 7400 Rosebelt BLVD, the zip code is 19152, is this a good neighborhood. And also how far is it from CC, I want to be close to the heart of the city, but I can't afford to pay the big bucks. Thanks in advance

Not a bad neighborhood, but not close to the heart of center city. You would need to take a bus and the Frankford El (subway) to get into center city. Have you checked University City? Where will you be working?

Agree with newmarling, that location doesn't seem like the right fit. Sublet with roomates and live in Center City,University City or maybe even Manayunk or the Mainline.

Theres a lot of college students,graduate students and recent graduates in the area but none of them live on Roosevelt Blvd.. Bad choice imo.

I think that if you want to be close to CC, then you should move to u-city, especially if you don't drive. public transportation can't be beat in that area. go to odonnellre.com and you will find pretty affordable apartments in a nice neighborhood. University City has a lot of young college students, cool cafe's w/ wireless internet to hang out. University City is right by University of Penn and Drexel.
Don't go apartment Hunting pass 48th, street. For your price range, look between 44th and 47th. St. Some streets you may notice are, Larchwood Ave., Osage Ave, Pine Street, Spruce, Locust, Baltimore, Chestnut and Walnut. Do not look for an apartment on or pass Market Street. I would live on 42nd and Walnut, Chestnut but I wouldn't live on 45 and beyond when it comes to Walnut, Chestnut. I wouldn't live pass 46th and Locust. Osage, Pine, Larchwood and Hazel, and Baltimore, I would live up to 47th Street.
