"certainly Philly"?

I would take Philadelphia's climate over Boston's easily, so not really sure what you mean there.

How is the Philly area unpleasant and harder to live in? One would assume its the exact opposite given the lower cost of living in Philly compared to Boston and SF.

Anyway unpleasant Philadelphia area.

Stone Harbor NJ








Avalon NJ




Wildwood Crest NJ



Ocean City NJ- Atlantic City in the background



Unimpressiveness Pennsylvania Side, NW of Philly

Can you answer why SF is an easier and much more pleasant place to live than Boston-AND CERTAINLY PHILADELPHIA-LOL When the cost of living is substancailly higher in SF?

As someone slightly neutral - those aren't the most impressive pictures of the area around Philadelphia. Definitely a distant third to the images we associate with the Bay Area and New England.

Let's just call a spade a spade and admit that if you drew a sixty-mile arc around Philadelphia, nothing in that arc is particularly geographically significant or naturally beautiful.
