LIVING IN PHILLY

Roughly midway between New York and Washington, DC, Philadelphia delivers with a mix of important historical attractions, charming neighborhoods, and a booming food scene.

WHERE DO I LIVE?

Philadelphia is a bustling yet manageable city to live in. Many residents choose to live in Center City because Magee Hospital and TJUH are within walking distance. However, other districts like Old City, Graduate Hospital, Bella Vista, Northern Liberties, Fishtown, East Falls, and Manayunk, each have their unique charm and personality.

"It's hard to narrow down my favorite thing about Philly! I love the combination of history, culture, and great food. I love how each neighborhood has its own personality. I love that the city is walkable."

Katie Zurbach, PGY-4
