Seattle. Not even close
I know you absolutely despise Philadelphia... but you can't honestly say that Historical Sites and Public Transit go to Seattle. That's just laughable.

Which one of these cities would I be seen on the transit? Seattle

Which city's historical sites would I be seen visiting? Seattle

I had my response thought out, I knew some Philadelphians would be offended but lets let other folks have their say. k? Therefore the criteria as they pertain to me all go to Seattle since its a city I see myself going to in the future.

btw despise is an understatement, if I shared how I feel about your city which are along the lines of an event that happened 70 years ago, I would be banned from this forum.
Oh, so your criteria had no bearing in actual fact... and you hate a city because of something that happened 70 years ago? Therefore you came to a forum and created a user name just to post every chance you get on every thread bashing a city because of that?

Just another day on City-Data.

Don't worry, I caught your comment before you edited it. I will keep that in mind for the future.

No, the criteria wasn't mine. I'm not the OP but yes I answered them as they pertain to me. Seattle is a city I see myself going back to therefore the criteria is useful for it and Philly is a city I wont be stepping foot in anymore so all the criteria is useless.

Nope. Don't know where you mixed what was in my edit with this.

Here's what was edited out

"btw despise is an understatement, if I shared how I feel about your city which are along the lines of an event that happened 70 years ago, I would be banned from this forum."

Hint, the event is unrelated to Philly.

Have a good day.

Think 1945. Hint, the event is unrelated to Philly.

Have a good day.
Think 1929 or 1945? What are you talking about? Why do you keep changing your posts?

You hate the entire metro area of Philadelphia because of something that happened in 1945 that wasn't even related to Philadelphia... makes sense to me.

Weren't you the one who said it is "2010, leave the stone ages" on another thread... oh that's right, it was you.

I'll be sure to keep this in mind the next time you're arguing Princeton is apart of Philly. It's apart of NYC metro btw. Welcome to 2012, please leave the stone ages bruh.

kthnx
