My first serious post-college job was to help design a large, upbeat exhibition about Philadelphia. I lived in LA then, but 20 years later, bought my own propaganda and moved here. What a great city to visit!--and this neighborhood (Mt Airy) is special. My son loved growing up here as well.
I'm pleased to help you figure out how to best enjoy the city...or leave you to your own plans if you prefer. My past includes 20 years in the museum field which overlapped with six years as a travel magazine editor.
So, yes, assume that i enjoy sharing the particulars. Self-employed since I could tote a little red wagon.
Oh, that's me in photo, at right. My mom's friend Shirley, at left. The 3rd photo -- with the braided bread -- is a sister. i included it inadvertently...but it's so hospitable in a Frida Kahlo way, that i've kept it, to say hello and welcome.
