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.

Lovely historic city that is quite enjoyable. Lots of excellent restaurants and activities throughout the 4 seasons. Not too expensive ad the public transportation is excellent. Jobs are abundant and life is not too expensive; people are very friendly. I am looking forward to move to it!

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.

The first computer was built in Philadelphia, the yellow spread mustard was created here, a lady called Betsy Ross created the first American flag in her humble upholstery shop, always here.

Philadelphia is a beautiful place to visit at any time. It is a city which has a constant flow of visitors throughout the year. The best time to visit Philadelphia is in winter. The museums of the city run from October to June. The independence hall festival celebrated on 4th July of every year brings a great crowd to the city. In the summer the city will be over crowded by visitors. This place is a heaven in the summer as one can enjoy the weather with 20° F.
