Years in Philly: this is debatable. I grew up in NJ but spent a lot of time with family here in Philly. I wish I could say I’ve been here my whole life, but in actual time, I’ve been here almost 2 years collectively. I wasn’t far over the bridge though.
Current Home: Tacony/Wissinoming, though I am a stone’s throw from Mayfair
