I have lived in the region since 1965 and in Philadelphia since 1985. In the 80s and nineties, I was a consultant and traveled to cities all over the county. I found each to have wonderful qualities, but overall, none compare in sheer variety like Philadelphia. I live in a mixed-race neighborhood, I raised my children here, I have great neighbors, and I just paid off my mortgage. I would not go anywhere else

After 9 years, we are moving out of Philly to Florida next month. We couldn't be happier !

The below comment is absolutely unhinged.

The rising crime globally has affected Philadelphia too.

It's the fifth largest city in America. Crime rate per person, Philly is 51st in overall crime and and 25th in violent crime.

By largest cities, Philly's overall crime rate is lower than the next two largest cities, Phoenix and Houston.

Philadelphia is a high-crime city. I have lived within and around Philadelphia since 2005. Gun violence, drug overdoses, homelessness, and violence, in general, is just as BAD as New York, Detroit, Chicago, and San Francisco. Don't bother moving to Philadelphia unless you plan on traveling with a gun, with or without a car.
