Philadelphia Apartments for Rent

Philadelphia

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania with a population of about 1.5 million residents. Philadelphia is well known as the place where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed, and was at one time the capital of the USA. So while it is a place with a lot of tradition and history, that isn’t all that Philly has to offer. It has a world class art and culture scene, several great restaurants, a diverse and strong economy, and great schools. If that all sounds interesting to you, consider renting and living in the City of Brotherly Love!
Atmosphere

As mentioned in the introduction, Philadelphia is a massive blast from the past. The city is full of history, and that can be seen in the architecture and layout of the city. The city features a ton colonial brick buildings and homes, cobblestone streets, and other features that will make you think you stepped foot into a time machine.

However, the city is much more than its history and tradition from hundreds of years ago. Philadelphia has a very diverse and powerful economy and features some of the best schools in the country. In addition to that, the city has a growing foodie scene and has many cultural institutions to check out as well.

The city is also known for its passionate sports fans, who aren’t afraid to speak their minds. The city has a “never say die” attitude and is full of hard workers. With that moniker being attached to Philadelphia, it is no surprise that it’s the city that gave birth to Rocky. All in all, the city is very traditional and hardworking, but is also adapting to the times and undergoing a renaissance of sorts.

History

Philadelphia arguably has more history than any other city in the country. The city was founded way back in 1682 and was actually the capital of the country for a brief while. The city played a huge role in the American Revolution and was the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and was the site of many other large events as well. Over the years, the city became an economic center and grew to one of the biggest cities in the country.

Because of the popularity, economy and history of Philadelphia, the rental prices can be fairly steep. In general, the average rent for an apartment in Philly is just over $1600 a month. Being that the city is large, rent will differ depending on where in the city you live, commute times to work, safety of your neighborhood, proximity to restaurants, and other factors.

Colonia bricks homes can be seen throughout the neighborhoods, and you will have the option to live and rent in buildings that are hundreds of years old. Many of the homes in Philadelphia are row homes, but come in many different styles including Victoria, Georgian, and many others.

This is perfect for the person or family who want a taste of history or tradition. However, if you are more into modern buildings and amenities, you will also be able to find a variety of options in Philadelphia too. There are a number of modern high rise apartments that you can rent in, and are also some more modern choices for single family homes as well. The fact that the city has been around for well over 300 years means that there are many choices for real estate in the city, but it is most common to find dwellings built before the 20th century.

Getting Around

The most popular way of getting around and getting to work in Philadelphia is by driving. About 55% of the population either drive or carpool to work. However, with so many cars on the road, that can sometimes lead to a lot of congestion, so it is a good idea to leave early if you will be driving during rush hour.

Despite the fact that many people decide to drive, the public transportation in Philadelphia is also a viable option. The city is served by SEPTA, which operates buses, trolleys, rapid transit, and trains throughout the city and nearby suburbs. There are numerous stations located throughout the city and using public transportation is practical and easy.
