I grew up in Mt. Airy (northwest section of Philadelphia). In 1974, I moved to Center City (called town or downtown back then). I lived in a walkup apartment at 18th and Pine until 1989. At that time, I moved to Queen Village. In 1999, I purchased my condo and moved back to Center City.
I hope I can assist you in getting around Philadelphia (mainly Center City) and offer suggestions to help you enjoy your visit.
