We're relocating to the Center City area so we can commute to Bryn Mawr on the R5 rail. The stations we want to live around are Suburban Station, Market East, or 30th St. Station...does anyone know where the best and safest place to rent a townhouse would be within walking distance of any those stations?

Either the Rittenhouse Square area close to Suburban Station or Washington Square West close to Market East. Another good choice would be Fitler Square which is between 30th Street and Suburban station.

It might be hard to find a townhome unless it's at Old City at around 1,000,000+ I think. You might end up looking for a condo or apt. instead.

They're renting...$1,000,000 plus seems extreme...

logan square has townhomes as does fitler square. not cheap though. remember, suburban is where crews change to commuting from market east will add a five minute layover to your trip. not a killer but worth noting
