I'll be moving in Philadelphia with my wife and baby (6 months) in May 09.

She'll be working near Philly airport, but I'll be working in NYC , so we're looking for a place to live near 30th Street Station.

- How is the area near the train station / City Center West ?

- Would it be possible to find a townhouse in a nice area within walking distance from the train station ?

- How bad is the commuting from PHL to NYP ? Can it be done ?
I plan to take the AMTRAK Keystone or Northeast Regional (approx. 1h20), as Acela Express is out of budget (I also understand there's no monthly or yearly pass with Acela ?).

- Is it possible to work on the AMTRAK trains (e.g. use a laptop, etc.) ?

Many thanks for any replies or contributions.
