Looking to Relocate to Philadelphia?

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,Of Interest to Buyers,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 2:31 pm

Here are some things you are going to want to know…

• The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sunday edition is available on Saturday

• Buy a “Smart Card” from the Philadelphia Parking Authority- that way you won’t have to ask strangers on the street for change for your parking meter

• Rittenhouse Square, Washington Square West, Fitler Square, and Society Hill (to name a few) are neighborhoods located in Center City. Center City encompasses a number of neighborhoods

• We don’t say pop…we say soda

• It is known as Queen Village, not Queens Village, though there may be may queens that live there.

• It is not Olde City…it is Old City

• Ben Franklin was never president of the United States

• NYC is an hour and eleven minutes by train

• We don’t eat Grinders or Subs…we eat Hoagies. Don’t ask me why

• Scrapple is something to be avoided at all costs (breakfast menu item)

• Acme is not just a place where the Wile E. Coyote buys things to “get”the Road Runner….it is a grocery store that is popular in the area 

Want the inside scoop on Philadelphia? Give me a call, and let’s laugh at some of the oddities our fine city presents to those looking to relocate to Philly!
