Default Photogenic City: Boston VS Philadelphia

I know all cities have their bad areas, so please refrain from that end of the topic.

- But which of these three cities have the best of the best areas for picture taking?
- Which one of them are absolutely breathtaking in the best way possible?
- Which city has the most photogenic spots?

Please discuss and you're free to share pictures.

Philly has a more photogenic center city, Boston has a impressive waterfront. About the same for both

I agree, I loved center city and all the awesome neighborhoods surrounding the city so I had to go with Philadelphia. Boston is beautiful as well though.

Boston gets the edge for me due to the waterfront.

This makes some sense though Boston's city center is no slotch.

If pressed I might say Boston because it has more dramatic images with the bay. But both offer great photo opportunities.


Would love to see more pics and/or links as these have some awesome images.

I like Philadelphia's skyline so much better. A slight edge to Boston for the nooks and crannies, little things like Acorn Street on Beacon Hill in Boston. So to summarize, for the panorama go with Philadelphia. For the close up shot go with Boston. I didn't vote because both cities offer different angles and perspectives of of photography that can not be summed up as one city over the other.
