I recently got offered a job in Conshohocken and need to move out to pennsylvania. Looking at apartments there are tons of options. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good location in or around philly. I'm looking for a studio or one bedroom that's affordable, but I"m willing to pay if the area/building is worth it. I'm fresh out of college, so I'm comfortable in a college town.

Thanks for any help or zip codes you can give!

I moved to Philadelphia from Orlando 2 months ago, and settled in Center City. I currently live in 15th and Arch, my apartment building is called the Metropolitan, zip code is 19102. I like the area so far, lots to do and close to everything.

The mainline towns are full of apartments that have a lot of young professionals, and college students from Villanova,St Joes,Haverford,Bryn Mawr,Rosemont etc. Towns include Bala Cynwd,Narberth,Haverford,Bryn Mawr,Rosemont among others.

King of Prussia,Gulph Mills,West Conshohocken,Malvern,Paoli are nice suburban towns.West Chester is probably the best suburban college town and there are some great apartments over that way and its a doable commute right down 202.

In Philly- Manayunk and Center City have alot of young professionals and college students but you need to be aware there is a 4.3 % wage tax you will have to pay if you live in Philadelphia.

Good luck
