Peter Pan housing
 n.— «Philadelphia is full of Peter Pan Housing—housing for people that never grow old. You’ve got living area and kitchen on first floor, bed and bath on second floor, laundry in basement (if you’re lucky enough to have it in your house). As people age and grow more frail, they can’t stay in these houses. And if they do, the cost of upkeep on a typical Philly house is way outside their budget and the house falls into disrepair.» —“The Slow Death of the Northeast” by Valley Twin in Roxborough PhillyBlog Aug. 1, 2006.
