Even without Manhattan, I say NYC still a really exciting place to be! There are so many cool neighborhoods in the other boroughs, especially in Brooklyn and in Queens. But sorry, Manhattan still part of NYC, so one need to take it all completely. NYC is not overrated. It is what it is. No city like it in America.

I think Philadelphia is underrated. Especially with all that history.

When people talk about Philly they just praise its history. They make it look as if because of its history, it has excuses to be gritty and rundown. I don't buy that. It is overrated for me.

Eh, I don't think Philly's that dirty and grimy. Outside of the history, it's still a nice city. Last summer I went to see the Braves play the Phillies at Citizens bank park, and then went to get a cheesesteak afterwards. So many people from the game went to Pat's after it was over, stood outside eating them on the streets and talked to one another. It was like a big party. It must be a pretty fun routine for a local. A lot of areas of Philly remind me of Brooklyn.

It is obvious you have never stepped foot in the City of Orlando by this, and many past posts.
that will spill over into the better areas. Do they build walls to prevent it?

Nope, I have never been to Orlando, or anyplace. Maybe I never even set foot out of New York City either. I am 20 years old too.
