A Home & Apartment Guide


Given that it was 1978, the issue includes a supplement called “Moving On” that featured a brightly colored cover looking like something from The Partridge Family tour bus.

The 32-page supplement had six different features that include historic photos, up-and-coming neighborhoods, second homes and “Home Buying Without Headache.”

An introduction reflects the far-out philosophy of the day: “Moving On: It’s part and parcel of today’s mobile society. Moving upward, outward to the suburbs or back to the city. Moving into houses or apartments, lofts or the condos that are sprouting wherever you look. There’s no decision so crucial in many lives as the Moving On decision — no question to be studied as carefully as the question of living space that fits a life plan,” Editor Sheila Jacobson wrote.

One story examined Jewish migrations around the Philadelphia area, with suburban areas such as Cheltenham Township and Lower Bucks County as well as Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Marlton and Haddonfield in New Jersey as popular destinations.

The article noted that guessing future Jewish migrations was difficult, then made a faulty prediction:

“Even demographers and sociologists are not making predictions. Most, though, feel that there won’t be too much of an exodus to the Sun Belt or other areas with more-temperate climates.”
