Overall Guide: Lived in Philadelphia 32 years. Philly took some getting used to. The summers can be torturous and the winters can be treacherous. One also has to know which sections of town to avoid but overall I really grew to love the beautiful architecture,the many excellent restaurants, the incredible variety of local fast food and the straightforward ,direct, people.

Overall Guide:  I was born here. I lived until the age of 5 near Cobbs Creek but at 101 North Millick Street. I returned to West Oak Lane in 1969 to live with my Grandmother and aunt at 1960 Renovo Street until I left Penn State University first Chester, then Delaware County Campus for the U.S. Air Force in 1971. I now live in England, but visit on and off over the years on active duty and now retired. I worked at the Bulletin, KYW Newsradio, the Associated Press and experienced WCAU's Traffic Alert aircraft for two weeks and wire photo operations at the AP which was based in the Bulletin Newspaper ... More building. I eventually became a broadcaster and journalist while in the air force as well as a policeman and travelled the world. My British wife loves visiting our relatives and sightseeing various places the public take for granted. It is a unique city that I have pride in saying I am a Philadelphian - it stays in your heart forever no matter where you end up in life. I grew up in New Jersey but when I come back to visit, I remained based in a hotel in center city. I don't need a car to get around. Great transport, good people and plenty to do and see. It gradually changes in politics and landscape, but you can't take the city out of Philly.
