What is a good area for a new college grad to look for an apartment? This is a female who will be working in Rittenhouse Square but work may be in other than business hours. No pets, no car.

What kind of rents are we talking about for a one bedroom flat?

The rent would depend on whether you are talking about a high rise or a walk-up. It might be better if you posted what you are able to pay.

Able to pay? $750 to $1000.

Check Craigslist for one bedroom apartments in Washington Square West. There are several in your price range. It's a good location in center city and walkable to Rittenhouse Square (or in bad weather public transportation is simple). There is a Whole Foods and Super Fresh close by, and it is also very close to the Reading Terminal Market.

Washington Square West, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You could also look for rentals near the regional rail to consider expanding your options. Just make sure you don't live near the regional rail R6 on the west side of the river as it does not run on weekends and during the week runs about 4 times each day attempting to cater mainly toward a business hours schedule. It will be cheaper to live further out generally, but accessibility decreases of course. Manayunk and Univ. City have good accessibility and stuff to do if you don't want to trek out to downtown from where you are living.
