Default Moving to Philadelphia from Florida

Hello everyone!

I'm new on here and was hoping to get some advice from fellow Brits living in Philadelphia. I'm currently living in Florida, working as a construction project manager, focusing mainly on kitchen and bathroom remodelling) I moved here with my wife (born and raised New Yorker) from London 1 1/2 years ago. We are flying up to Philly towards the end of next month for a couple of days, and then moving there permanently in November. I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice on the city overall, good areas to live (we are looking at Chesnut Hill at the moment), what the job market is like (anyone happen to be in construction?!), decent place for a pint etc! My wife has spent a lot of time there, but it will all be new to me, so It would be great if anyone could give me some pointers, or let me know their experience of living in the city overall. I was also wondering, if anyone knows, if as a construcyion project manager there, I would need to be a union member? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Matt

Buy a warm winter coat! Florida to Philly in November could be a shock to the system. Other than that, good luck in your new home

Well you've actually been a member for 18 months, just not a very active one.
