The apartment I'm looking at has parking and is directly across the street from a health club. Convenience is key for me, but I know the area immediately surrounding Temple leaves a little to be desired, so I'm willing to deal with a 20 minute drive/subway commute if everything else works well. This particular apartment seems to fit the bill.


Bump. Tell me about Old City, Philly experts! :mrgreen:

I'm not a Philly expert but the few times I've been out in Old City, the scene was CRAZY FUN. Just an awesome place to hangout on weekends.

I work at 2nd and Chestnut. Lots of bars. Lots of restaurants - good but overpriced. Don't seem to have many native female population: ones that come at night don't live near, and the ones live there are young professionals that can afford to live there. Parking is expensive. Traffic is always heavy. What else you want to know?

Awesome, that's great to hear. Of course, I'll probably have no time to enjoy the place, but at least people will be led to believe I'm having fun!

I guess one question would be - how quick can I get to Temple, and what means of transportation would accomplish this best? As for the price, the place I found is 800 with a roommate. That seems really reasonable, but I guess its a little pricey for Philly. I'm coming from NY so everything seems so affordable! :D

They ask "where you go to school" and "where you go to law school". It would be hard to impress girls with Harvard dad and Swarthmore moms.

I went to the Haverford School and dealt with Baldwin girls. You don't impress them.

Shipley FTW, bro. Baldwin girls suck too. You have to go after Harriton/LM type girls. Rich, but not super stuck up.

There is a subway stop at 2nd and there is one at 5th. You can take that to 15th street and get on the Orange Line (Broad Street line) and up to Temple. Should take 15-20 minutes tops. Very simple. The law school is like half a block from the Cecil B Moore stop.

800 is average if the place is nice. I think 1400-1500 for an average 2BR is reasonable for old city.

Sounds great, overall. The only concern I have is the fact that I'm someone who likes to do their work in the library. I anticipate many late evenings - 11 or 12 at night. Think I'm asking for trouble taking the train that late? I do it all the time in NY, but for some reason its a lot scarier in a new city.

I remember they used to run shuttle buses after a certain hour along the lines, but I am not sure if they still do that. You can always catch the bus with your transpass. It is not sketchy if you get off at city hall and switch to another bus. Subway is fine. I mean, SEPTA is no Metro, so it looks sketchier, but if you don't walk around with bling and have 20's hanging out of your back pocket you should be fine.

Also SEPTA let you take bikes on, so you can also consider that.
