I love Philly. Can't wait to get down there again soon for Murder By Death
I love/miss Philly. Lived there for 3 years while in college. It'll always be my 2nd home. I always found the shows there to be 100x more fun than here in NJ.

Hey this is my city. I love the city. Hoagies, water ice, wawa, "wit wiz", jawn, etc!
I'm a NJ-ian who frequents Philly quite often, but would love to move there. I applied to and was accepted to Rosemont's grad school, and am currently considering attending.
much prefer it to nyc
I hung out with cwhit
I'll be living in NYC for three weeks this summer and I have no idea how I'll feel about it. I have lived in the greater Philadelphia area (Bucks County, West Chester, and now Roxborough) my entire life.
People always ask me to explain what jawn means lol.
The Enduring Mystery Of 'Jawn', Philadelphia's All-Purpose Noun
Actually a pretty interesting read on the history of the word & it's meaning. Usually I'm just like, "Eh it's that thing y'know?" and leave it at that.
Tbf, if you're consistently using jawn to a bunch of people who don't know what it means you probably should just stop using jawn in general
It became habit when I lived in Philly and followed me when I moved to NJ.
"Linguists have long been fascinated by the peculiar mid-Atlantic mutations of words like “water” and “creek” (in Philadelphia parlance: “wooder” and “crick”)."
This is interesting, because where I'm from on the Jersey Shore, "wooder" is a thing. When I was in PA, people would make fun of me for not pronouncing "water" correctly.
oh easily, NYC is way too fast paced, philly is the closest i can think of to a culture center (at least within music) while still being a much calmer city

Guess I should sub. I'm from the Lehigh valley area so I'm not too far.
