To answer your question, the Northwest section of Philadelphia is pretty unique to any other area of the city. Functional main streets, outdoor activities, and lots of public transportation. To compliment the area as a whole would require more space than Trulia allows.
Here's a great place to start: http://philadelphiaspeaks.com/. I personally specialize in NW Philadelphia real estate, so just let me know if you need any more help with your search.
