Philly might be larger than some of those cities I put before it; however as far as size of downtonw, Philly is not on par for the size of city it is..Put it this way, Pittsburgh has like 110 (remind you not exact but close) highrises and Philly has like 150. Not too much different. Denver has 200, Boston, and San Fran like 300. See the difference in buildings which make up a downtown or "core". Skyscrapercity will give you these statistics. See for yourself

Las Vegas was the worst place I have ever been. I cringe at the thought of it. The gambling, the people, the food all sucked!

I have never really visited a city I didn't like. The one I live in got really boring after the first year. We have millionaire next to people who are homeless. Wichita Falls has ony 90,000 people and we have every type of person immagonable. It has gotten very old after 5 YEARS!!!
