Always surprised by City Data's inconsistency. Lol.
I'm not from Philadelphia in the least, but I can't possibly understand this one.

Is Philadelphia somehow closer to a Flint, MI than Boston? I don't get it. What exactly do you think it is like?

It's a top 5 urban destination in America. How hard is that to understand?

"I'm so surprised how well San Francisco/New York/Chicago/Philadelphia/Boston are doing in the polls!" - What??

Not to mention the simple fact that the poll is 50/50. Were you expecting it to get six votes?

The internet has really brought into light how truly astounding it is how many people that are out there that really don't know anything. Trump levels.

I've eaten pretty damn well in both cities. Great variety in both.

Never been to Philly, I hear it's wicked cool.

Re: Boston. I wonder how many people get over the bridge into Cambridge and Somerville. To me, you are missing half of what Boston has to offer if you don't. It's also a completely different vibe.

Boston is 48 square miles and Philly is 150. If you geographically included the municipalities surrounding Boston into its borders to make 150 square miles, Boston equals Philly in population.

Harvard Square is like a smaller version of Piccadilly Circus.

And if you aren't rich enough to afford a horse and buggy, then you need to crawl everywhere.

Walking, running, skipping, and jogging are strictly forbidden in Boston.
(Old Puritan law. Don't question it or you'll be sent to live with the heathens in Rhode Island or New Hampshire.)
