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... more 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 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.

It also offers many activities like mountain biking, sailing, canoeing and lots more. The Independence Seaport Museum traces the city’s role as a migration centre... more with a shipyard and submarine. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is one of the nation’s largest and most significant museums with an extensive collection of art masterpieces by renowned artists like Picasso, Matisse and so on. The Italian Market is the country’s largest outdoor market which offers many items like homemade pastas, fish, fresh cheese and so on.
