Moving to Philly - Help
We are thinking of a move to Philly, or the Main Line, next summer when our son graduates. He will most likely be attending college in NY or Boston.
I would love to hear from those who have lived there or are from there. I went to St. Joe's for two years, so know the area a bit, and my brother went to Villanova and lived in Haverford. I am used to snow (don't love it) as I from the East Coast, but don't recall the winters being very dreary, snow seemed moderate.
My husband will be semi-retired at that point and I will need to look for work in the non-profit sector.
Ideally looking for a nice (diverse place) near public transport (walking distance to train). I like Chestnut Hill (who doesn't), and on the ML, I like Ardmore and Wynnewood. Does anyone know about Elkins Park? Mt. Airy in Philly seems like a good spot, but don't have first-hand knowledge.
Would enjoy hearing about the area and if it a good place for empty nesters who are artsy (not into sports - I know, kind of a sin in Philly).
We are looking for a new adventure and being close to family.
Although we love the Bay Area, we are moving due to the wildfires. I am in the North Bay and I am not going to go through another fire season.
