If you used one of the installers for OS X, it installs into
/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework. /System/Library/Frameworks is
where the Apple-supplied Pythons are located. You should not attempt to
alter or delete files there.

To use the new Python you should ensure that the framework bin directory
is added to the front of your shell PATH environment variable. For
Python 2 installs, the installer does this automatically by default. For
Python 3 installs, the installer does not. However you can double-click
the Update Shell Profile command in the /Applications/Python 3.3 folder.
After it completes, open a new terminal window and you should find that
python3.3 is now available. You can also manually edit your
..bash_profile or other relevant shell startup file:

export PATH
