I live near Rittenhouse square. Love it. Great food and night life scenes

Loving Philly, I moved here from NYC. To me Philly is a smaller, more accessible, and cheaper version of NY. The food/bar scene here is incredible. I lived in Fairmount which is a nice quiet neighborhood for young professionals and families. Mostly walk up brownstones and townhouses. Live in Logan Square now in a luxury midrise. Mostly higher end condos and buildings in this area. People love northern liberties/fishtown, south Philly, and old city/ society hill. Each brings its own thing to the table, depends on what you want

I will second Fairmount. Quiet neighborhood with good restaurants, but it's walking distance to Center City. Philly is great. VERY reasonable cost of living, but it still has cool art museums, amazing food scene, all the sports teams, and it's growing super fast. It's also pretty centrally located on the Eastern seaboard. Quick train rides to DC or NYC. Short flights to Boston, the Carolinas, even ATL.

Would 2nd living near rittenhouse or old city unless you're a hipster / want those brooklyn vibes and then id say fishtown is for you. Philadelphia is an awesome city that gets a weird rep. Definitely has issues with homeless people and trash but so does every major city. Night life is so so. Not a big club / dance music scene. But nyc is an hour 20 away by train so I just head up there whenever I need to party

NYC or Philly?

Rittenhouse and Washington Squares are super nice, old city is really cool

My son is entering Kindergarten and his (great but hamstrung) public school can only offer 60-85 minutes per day for remote learning, 3 days per MONTH in-school. Just not feasible for a working mom in this industry. So I met some parents, we hired a private teacher, and I’m rolling with a 4-family homeschool pod. I’m keeping my kid in public school, hoping the curriculums can align and not go crazy. Love and strength to all moms and dads and partners out there. It’s tough - but so are we!

Hi all. Need an advice. I got a job as front end developer in pharma advertising agency 3 years ago. Started at 65k yearly salary. Next year got a raise to 80. A year after I was told I am good to be senior front end developer but my manager asks me to wait a whole year without title change or salary change just because he has been asking to much for me. Is it normal? Or should I just switch? Thank you all
