"good place to live as a student"

What I like about Philadelphia is the life. I have experienced the joy when Philli won.People were rejoicing till 3 AM. Though I am not from Philli I easily joined them with my friends.
I just loved it.
I love the walnut street to hang out with friends. Cool street where I can just walk down and chill.
Love the Irish Pub on walnut.
South street makes me feel like charming shopping place with lots of eating places and cool wind from the Delaware river.I am definitely sure anyone specially young would love center city as much I did.
Every mode of communication is available in Philli. I never faced any kind of problem though I have no car as of now.Let me tell you car parking in garage costs much. You don't need a car actually.
There are lots of bikers around the city.I love riding bike.So philli is great for me.
