What do you like most about this neighborhood or city?  Livability.

How has the recession affected you? It made me leave a job where I was complacent, and I got a job where I’m rarely bored.

What would you spend your last $5 on? I don’t really know. I feel that I’d find some public transit to a friend or family member’s house.

Why did you choose these 3 items? Well, for the questions asked, they were the most accurate answers I could give.


Thank you for a look Philly, F!  Truly appreciate this perspective. Hope you don’t mind that I stole your image off your website :) – h!
