Seriously what are you talking? The tell truth? What the hell is "the truth"? You are crazy if you are about to repeat what I think you are going to repeat.

All trends point to both being healthy cities.

My 13 year old son has a love affair with urban areas. Five years ago we started taking "MAN" trips to explore urban environments. So far we have explored D.C., Baltimore, Cleveland, Toronto, Newark, Harlem, and Brooklyn (Bedford Stuyvesant).

My son wanted to explore Bed Stuy because his favorite sitcom (Everybody hates Chris) is set there. although we pass through Philly often, we never explored the inner city together. Our Philadelphia trip will include Amtrak and the 30th street station. The last time I took Amtrak into philly the Cira Center was under construction. At that time I thought a few more towers would do wonders for the skyline. I'm excited and cant wait to explore the FMC construction site.

Lol. Best to ignore her at this point. She's clearly mentally insane.

This is a thread involving Pittsburgh and Philadelphia is it not? I'm not sure how it's "boosting" to post pictures and articles about positive things happening in Philadelphia. I would definitely welcome the same from Pittsburgh forumers as well.

Sounds great! Yeah, there is a good amount of new towers going up in Philly currently including FMC and Comcast Innovation and Technology Center which will be the states first Supertall. A lot of towers going up or built in University City and along the Schuylkill River as well.

PS - I love Everybody Hates Chris!

But you're doing it in away to marginalize Pittsburgh as being less than Philly .... You're playing the whole "My City is better than Your City" Pissing Contest. As somehow showing cranes in the air shows Philly is doing economically better than Pittsburgh there for is a "Better City"... When economically on paper it isn't true. The same Google Searches you did on Philly Success stories, one can do for Pittsburgh its not that hard, just not worth the time.

You're obsessed with boosting Philadelphia .... Why don't the Pittsburgh boosters sit here ans Post a gazillion Pictures of Pittsburgh development. Because its Not a Pissing Contest for them like it is for you.

I'm not boosting Philadelphia or marginalizing Pittsburgh. I would welcome pictures or articles about new construction in Pittsburgh.

Not sure how you could say Philadelphia isn't doing well economically. There wouldn't be so much under construction if the city was doing poorly. Every major analyst is saying Philadelphia is doing well and predicts the city will continue to do well.

As for 'better city,' I never once said that. I personally feel that Philadelphia is the better city, but that is entirely subjective. It's opinion. Everybody is free to have their own opinion.
