Philadelphia, often referred to as a “city of neighborhoods”, is a vibrant city filled with a rich tapestry of arts, culture and education. The City of Brotherly Love is home not only to some of the most important historical sites in American history, but to almost half a million college students as well!

  • Proximity to nightlife, restaurants and bars
  • Identity of neighborhood population: young professionals, students, families, etc.
