Philly LOVE, yup it’s a thing!

When I moved to Philly in early 2011, my love for Philly only grew with getting to know the people and the neighborhoods.

I found over time that the love for Philly is strong! Many locals who moved away came back. That’s a trend I see continuing. Young adults once they start families, empty nesters returning to their roots and now with remote work standards, the City of Brotherly LOVE has become a magnet for relocation as well.

How Philly rallies together to meet a challenge is one of the hallmarks of true Philly living. If you’re an Eagles fan, you understand!

On a more serious note, the increasing gun violence and lack of leadership in City Hall have spurred neighborhood solutions, and new political efforts that show the true heart of Philadelphia.

In a recent blog post, I shared how my clients from New York ask me What about crime in Philly?

As disappointed as many of us are in a Mayor who doesn’t want his job and has made inept proposals to reduce gun violence, recent community efforts show how Philly rises to a challenge;

  • Some solutions for a better, safer Philadelphia; Philadelphia mayoral hopeful Allan Domb vows to make public safety his top priority.
    “I have lived my entire adult life in the City of Philadelphia, and I truly believe our city is the greatest in the nation. Our diverse neighborhoods, incredible institutions of higher education and small businesses make us who we are – a city of fighters and believers.”
  • Fishtown hired private security. While private security touches a nerve regarding income disparity, it also reflects the community pride and resilience that shape the local flavor of Philly neighborhoods.
  • Center City District organizes safety patrols – Paul Levy, long time advocate for Avenue of the Arts once again takes a strong leadership role in revitalizing MidTown Philly where empty offices have left a void.
