@Oscar Beteta The El/L is a SEPTA train line in Philadelphia, I believe its the Market-Frankford line
Thanks! I guess it was is commonly referred to the MFL line.
@Dave Ventura did you end up buying in Germantown?

Hey Dave, I'm looking at Germantown as well. It seems like there's a lot of exciting businesses in the pipe and access to Wayne Junction makes it a very attractive area. The good thing with Philly nowadays is investors from NYC are buying up everything since everything is so cheap compared to Brooklyn and elsewhere.
I see nothing but good things for Germantown 3 years out from now. I use google search trends to gauge where a local market may be in the business cycle and see Fishtown similar to how Brooklyn was for NY around 2003/2004. Anywhere in Philly near the El or any major train stop will be a great buy long-term. Best of luck to you.
I'm from Brooklyn, and investing in Philadelphia. I see a lot of similarities. I think the one thing slowing Philadelphia's growth is the lack of small businesses and shops, and the tight streets. But as I drive through parts of Philadelphia I see similarities to parts of Brooklyn.
