We’ve been talking a lot about the best Philly neighborhoods around here lately, and I love that. Whether you’re new to the city or have lived here forever, neighborhoods are something relevant to each and every one of us. I’ve shared my picks for my favorite Philly neighborhoods for new residents, but the fact is: there are so many other hoods Philly ladies just like you live in and love coming home to that are not on that list. So, to give you all a more inclusive look at what the city has to offer for young women, I reached out to some of my blogger buds, blog readers, and Twitter followers to share why they love their Philly hoods.
Earlier this week, I shared my Philadelphia apartment hunting tips. Today, I’d like to give my response to the other question I get most frequently: where should I live? Picking your first Philly neighborhood is such a treat, because this city is known for its special, unique hoods. We truly do have a place for every human and every budget here, but when I’m recommending a place for a city newcomer, I typically stick with a select few. If your neighborhood is not mentioned here, don’t worry – I’m working on another piece featuring some Philly ladies repping their hoods – all over the city! (Keep reading if you’d like to be involved!)
Before I say anything else: welcome! Philadelphia is a city I am pretty much obsessed with in every way possible (except this one). If the journey of moving to a new city seems overwhelming to you, you are not alone. Since I’ve started blogging, the question I see most frequently always has to do with moving to the city, and it is: where. do. I. start? And the answer, hopefully, is here!
