In PA as far as the law goes, you can OC without a permit BUT that can be a double edged sword in my opinion.
also- Pennsylvania will not honor Florida CCW Permits issued to out of state residents of Florida

There are some articles on this point. One argument is that it is legal since there is no law that prohibits it, I've never read the statute on that point when I live in Pittsburgh.

I thought PA was a preemption state? Why can't you carry in Philly as you can in Pitt?

Since you are from NJ I would get a non resident PA permit, only $20 and PA can be a pain in the ass for other states non resident.

Non-resident Florida CWPs are honored in PA.

From the AG's site:
Note: It has come to the attention of the Office of Attorney General that there has been confusion over the applicability of Pennsylvania's reciprocal privileges with regard to the residency status of an individual who has been issued a valid license/permit. It is the position of the Office of Attorney General that recognition within Pennsylvania is based on the issuance to an individual of a valid license/permit by the reciprocal contracting state, and not on the license/permit holder's place of residence.

It is.

State law requires a license for OC in "cities of the first class."

Since you are from NJ I would get a non resident PA permit, only $20 and PA can be a pain in the ass for other states non resident.
An applicant for PA non-res. LTCF must have a license/permit from their home state if such is available. N.J. does issue permits, just not very often. So, a N.J. resident must have a N.J. permit in order to be eligible for a PA non-res. LTCF.

The part I highlighted is incorrect. Pa does in fact honor Florida licenses to out of state residents, as per the PA attorney General.
