I am a recent college graduate and just accepted a job in Mt. Laurel, NJ. I am looking to rent an apartment in the Philadelphia area. What are the best areas to live for a recent college grad that is a reasonable commute, safe, but still has a lot going on in terms of nightlife, restaurants, bars, shopping ect.

I think that it depends on your type of commute. If you need to drive out to the King of Prussia area, then Manayunk is definitely going to cut down on your morning & evening hassle. If you're driving the 95 N/S corridor, then Northern Liberties, Fishtown, and East Passyunk are great options.

The hot, trendy areas right now as far as nightlife, restaurants and walkability would be the Port Richmond, Fishtown Northern Linerties section which is very accessible to the Betsy Ross Bridge. Please give me a call and I can send you a few listings in these areas 267-970-3952.
