My suggestion is dependent on the connections you have in NY. Are these connection with people who can and will hire you if you move? If not, my suggestion is that you create a plan for a move. That plan should include a budget plan, (including how much money you need saved before making your move), a target list of people who can hire you whom you will take the time to create relationships with before you move to NY, and the research of entertainment industry networking organizations in NY. You can make the trip to NY once a month to network.
It is very expensive to live in NY and if you don't have a plan for survival, the stress will hurt you more than living there will help you. The good news is that relationships can be created from Philly by phone, SKYPE, and email.
