I am a new resident of Philadelphia. Grew up in a quiet middle-class suburban town in New England and it's been a big change. The neighborhood I live in now is very lively and diverse, and has been a welcome change. It's very convenient to live here, because I can walk to everything I need such as the bus lines, bank, grocery stores, restaurants, nightlife, etc. It is a little more expensive than I personally budgeted for but the convenience and safely of the neighborhood make it worth while. So far so good!
