Are you a visitor or a resident of Manayunk?
Where are you from originally?
I am originally from Buffalo, New York.
What brings you to Manayunk?
After medical school, I came here for my residency and then stayed for my fellowship. I've been here for the past five years and just finished all of my training on June 30th.
What are some of your favorite things to do in Manayunk?
My wife and I like to come to Main Street and try out the different restaurants. That was a little bit easier to do before we had our baby girl. Manayunk is a very easy place to explore. We don't have to go to center city to go out to eat.
Any favorite restaurants?
I like going to SOMO. Sometimes I'll just go there to have a drink and we do like to order out from Smiley's Cafe.
Do you have any recommendations for people who are coming to visit?
Coming from New York, it was just such a pain to park. It was rough, so coming here, we had to make sure we had parking. It has worked out really well where we are now.
Describe Manayunk in three words.
Quaint, charming, and vibrant.
Why do you love living Manayunk?
It's the best of both worlds in terms of still being close to Center City Philadelphia, but also feeling like I am living in more of a residential-like area.
