Question by theresa4104: What are some good neighboorhoods near downtown?
My family is considering moving to Philadelphia this year (job transfer). We’d need to be within 10-15 minutes from downtown- specifically the UPenn medical centers (university city). Can anyone suggest good neighborhoods or subdivisions? Where do young professionals and young families live? We’d like to purchase a home.
Thanks for the clarification.

Any good neightborhoods near Univeristy City?


Can anyone suggest a nice place to live that would be within 15 or so minutes from University City (medical center/children’s hospital etc.)

UPenn is not downtown. Downtown is called “Center City.” UPenn is in “West Philly,” aka “University City.” UPenn, surprisingly, is not at the center of the universe, or the city. Who knew.

    Well, to live close to University City (that is the area in which you are inquiring about) it is not going to be all that cheap. Particularly since real estate overall in the Philly metro area has appreciated considerably in recent years. I live in Delware County, a western suburb in Philly. It takes me approximately 20-25 minutes to commute to work in the University City area. One of the good things about living where I am is the convenience of access to the city life, as well as a slightly cheaper City wage tax, that EVERYONE must pay. In addition, auto insurance is a bit cheaper than living in Philly.
    The downside to all that convenience is that my real estate taxes are a little costly. But, as anywhere else, everything has it’s advantages and disadvantages.
    You did not specify exactly WHERE you will be working, but University of PA should have some relocation information to help you make your transition here more smooth. If you have any questions, feel free to email me! Hope this helps! Good luck! 🙂
