Again bringing Pittsburgh into this......You dont come into the Pittsburgh coversations is because you NO NOTHING ABOUT THE BURGH......While I may be homer for Pittsburgh....I will sit here anyday and admit its problems...Something we can't seem to get Philly homers to do....

When I see non-factual information being given for a place that I know thoroughly whether it be Bashing or Cheerleading I will voice my opinion...and I'm sorry some people can handle the truth...

I agree the thread had alot of potential, but one truth statement to show that Philadelphia is relevent to this subject and all the homers attack because it doesnt show Philly in the fairytail some try to portait

Sorry but I must call a Spade a Spade.....
I'm not a Philly homer at all. I rarely post on cd unless I feel like I need to say something which is now.Personally i dont give two ****s what anyone in real life or on cd think of the city. But it seems that u do. U get soo worked up over a pointless thread on a MESSAGE BOARD as if it means something.Your words are redundant. Its not that serious... go live your life.

I chimed in about Newark page one, comment one I would make a more in-depth post with pix, but it's been done in the past.
Buffalo used to be one of the largest cities in the nation. It was an industrial mecca, full of prosperity- The economic decline hit hard on all the industrious cities (Detroit, Newark, Buffalo, etc) but these are the cities that heavily shaped their regions in terms of financial growth.
Newark's doing the best job out of the three in terms of cleaning the city up- I'm not saying Detroit and Buffalo aren't, but Newark went from #1 most dangerous city to near #30 12 years later- And it's only getting better.

Camden on the other hand. There really is little good in that decrepit city unfortunately. The water front has a nice aquarium, a University, a few luxury high rises, and it has spectacular views of Philadelphia's skyline. But outside that small area, it gets really bad really quick.

The Campbell's soup company originated in Camden.
It was and possibly could be a beautiful city, but it looks like someone lit the city on fire and put it out with urine.

Ok....you win. Now I can go back to living my life in the "war zone" that is Mt Airy...which is ironically filled with beautiful stone homes and stately mansions, wonderful neighbors, fantastic gardens, nice restaurants, serviced by 2 train lines, etc. Boy come to think of it I spend lots of time outside Center City in the "war zones" you speak of; you know places like Chestnut Hill, West Germantown, Roxborough, Manayunk, Andorra, East Falls, University City, Passyunk East, Pennsport, Graduate Hospital, Northern Liberties, Fairmount, Spring Garden, Fishtown, Port Richmond, Mayfair, Fox Chase, Rhawnhurst, Bridesburg, Somerton....even a nice big swath of Kensington. How have I ever survived?

Lots and lots of good in Philly. It's just flat-out an awesome city. Problems? Of course. It was built on the momentum of the industrial revolution, and when that died so did many of it's neighborhoods, especially north of Center City. But those blighted areas do not define the city (of which many are seeing progress and investment, even in this crappy economy), especially when we are graced with the neighborhoods I spoke of above. I encourage everyone to pay a visit, you'll be pleasantly surprised.
