Interaction with my guests are totally up to the guests. A few of my guest enjoy having time to themselves.

I am located in Center City West (Logan Square neighborhood.) It is 2 blocks north of the Franklin Institute, Logan Square Fountain and the new Barnes Exhibit. I am 4 blocks from the Art Museum, and walking distance to City Hall and all Center City attractions. My apartment is also located 2 blocks south of the Historic Eastern State Penitentiary museum and many of the pubs and restaurants that the Fairmount neighborhood has to offer. I am also a short walk to The Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia, The Museum of Natural History, The Mutter Museum of the College of Physicians and The Rodin Museum and Moore College of Art and PAFA (PA Academy of Fine Arts.)
Downtown Philadelphia is a very walkable city. You can walk or bus to visit the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and Visitor Center in Olde City, less than 1.75 miles away. On your way back, you may stroll through Chinatown and check out the Chinese Gate at 10th and Arch Sts. Then stop by the Reading Terminal Market for delicious Amish fare and other great food. All north of Market Street.
From Olde City you may also want to walk South through Society Hill, Head House Square (original Market Place) and South St. Or head west on Walnut Street through Washington Square continuing on through the Gayborhood. If you continue on Walnut St you can cross Broad Street ( Avenue of the Arts District) and come into Rittenhouse (email hidden). When you get to 20th Street turn right(N) and you are less than 1 mile from my apt.
Philadelphia has an incredible amount of attractions, restaurants, and experiences to offer, and I look forward to sharing more ideas with you to ensure a wonderful stay in this city that I love!

It's fantastic experience to live here! I strongly recommend Ed's so comfortable apartment to every visitor! Ed is so warm-hearted person and he is very generous and helpful! Our family will be leaving here soon and I just want to say thank you so much indeed, Ed! We are going to miss you very much!
在费城的一个多月里，我们就像一家人一样生活在一起。遇到不解和困惑，Ed都会主动提供帮助和解答。这所房子的位置到Art Museum、Mutter Museum等景点非常近，性价比高。
Ed was wonderful-- friendly, well organized, generous with his time. His apartment is very comfortable (great bed, the BEST pillows) and quiet. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks Ed!!
Ed was a great host and his apartment was even better than in pictures with very nice bedroom with comfortable bed, and very convenient bathroom.
His apartment is in a very nice location near Rodin museum and a Wholefoods market. Bus stop is within 2 min walk, and it takes nearly 10 to 15 minutes to Wills Eye where I was doing my rotation. Buses are always on time, and the schedule is very convenient.
Ed is very kind and considerate person and he is always willing to help. When I was short in time, he took me to station by his car twice and he did everything to make my stay even more enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend Ed and his apartment for a stay. I am very happy that I got a chance to meet him and if I ever travel to Philly again I would stay at Ed's place.
I had a nice stay at Ed's apartment. The view from his balcony of the city was great. The location made it ideal for walking to the event I was attending.
Ed was very welcoming and eager to help us with directions and suggestions for getting around Philadelphia. His place looks just like the pictures. Our stay was very enjoyable; he even provided orange juice and bagels for breakfast! Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a place to stay in Philadelphia.
Ed's apartment was an ideal, I would say unbeatable, base from which to explore beautiful Philadelphia. Ed was a wonderful, friendly & informative host, his home is very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen.
I am semi-retired, friendly, open minded and LOVE Philadelphia. I look forward to giving people a renewed sense of brotherly love. I love chocolate and enjoy all types of dance. To date my favorite travel destination is Paris, France. My dream destinations are: Okinawa, Australia, Oberammergau and the Galapogos. As a host, I want my guests to feel at home and comfortable. As a guest I want to immerse myself in local culture. Bon Voyage and Welcome to Philadelphia. Ed
