We love Philadelphia-can’t you tell? But a few people have told us that they think our town is less than friendly to newcomers.
Some of this may be cultural-yo, you’re in the Northeast. And Philadelphia’s strength is in its neighborhoods, where the line between close-knit and clannish can be thinner than a South Philly pizzelle.
But like any town, Philadelphia gives what it gets.
If you’re friendly, you’ll make friends. Coffee shops, churches and organizations you enjoy are great places to meet your neighbors. If you wait for people to come to you, you may be disappointed, but that’s true in Philadelphia or anywhere else.
Not that we’d ever want to live anywhere else.
