    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
