Philadelphia Apartment Advice? Part 3

1st time apartment renter here. I signed a lease recently for a place at the western edge of UPenn's campus, but it's above my ideal budget. School funding will cover rent in the fall, but I'll have to work more during school to cover food costs plus saving. Should I stay or seek a cheaper apartment for the fall and spring semesters? It'll be another chunk of money to do an apartment search and move again, but it'd save money and energy for 8 months. [more inside]

Philadelphia Apartment Recommendations in 2018? (student apt preferred)

Recommendations for a student moving to Philadelphia? Hi everyone, thank you for visiting my question! I'm about to begin a full-time, online master's and am hoping to relocate to a city with decent walkability and transportation and get a studio (or 1 BR apt if the price and availability are good). I am looking to move in within the next month. I don't have Facebook and looking at Google reviews can be inconclusive, so I thought I'd post here! This is my first time moving into my own place.

DIY Tour Rail Park Philadelphia

Hello, how do I do a DIY tour of the Rail Park in Philadelphia? I've not been in town for the organized tours. Three miles of rough urban hiking and exploration is enticing. Where to start? What to see? Where to get a drink and lunch along the way?

Travelling to Philly for two days late July for college tours for my girlfriend's son. Staying two blocks from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

What's New In Philadelphia?

Travelling to Philadelphia in mid August for a break - I'm a regular visitor but I haven't been in 3 years - what's new in town that I can't miss? I like fine dining, gay bars, unusual museums, vintage or discount menswear, and science/engineering sights/tours. Assume I've done all the major attractions like the Mutter and Eastern State. I have no interest in Founding Fathers stuff. [more inside]
