I would suspect University City wants its own spotlight/independence perhaps for recruitment reasons but for all intents + purposes University City + Center City are 1 consolidated district. 50,000 residents + 50,000 students should logically be added to Center Citys population.


Just read an interesting article about Center Citys growing density. Currently its 29,000 ppsq mi..(Pine to Vine, River to River) At its current growth rate it will reach Manhattan like density in approximately 45 years. Manhattans density is 70,000 people per sq mile.

Nobody's jealous of something that is made up. Chicago has the second largest business district, which continues to grow at a good clip. Nice try, and I am glad you love your city, everybody should, but be real about it.

It is not and never has been. It's a part of West Philly and is across the river.
