Philly is taking off! Restaurants are opening all over town. New bars, coffeeshops, galleries and clubs are popping up on every corner. The Barnes Museum is finally downtown. Paines Park, a 2.5 acre skatepark, is open after 10 years of advocacy. Rates are low (but ticking up). The available housing stock is robust. The list of positive factors in Philadelphia’s favor is growing every day.
Check out our neighborhoods and see for yourself: Fitler Square, Wash West, Bella Vista, Society Hill, Mount Airy, East Falls, Chestnut Hill, Northern Liberties, Brewerytown! There is a lot to see. Philadelphia is not the provincial backwater of yesterday.
