DT DC







DT DC could literally Swallow CC and for the record people live in DT DC too, just not as much as Philly because in DC it's where most people work, play, and shop. Not sleep. Nieghborhoods like Dupont Circle, LoganCircle and Foggybottom could rival against any DT Philly neighborhood and it wouldn't suprise me if they would all come out on top.



DuPont Circle (DT DC Neighborhood)




Logan Circle (DT DC Nieghborhood)





Foggy Bottom (DT DC Neighborhood)






CC Philly would mop the floor who????? maybe some other City but definitely not DC. First of all CC is way to small and for it to be so small with the kind of density that Philly Niegborhoods have I wouldn't expect CC to be anything less than Vibrant. It better be, with all of those people in such a small little area. I was just in Philly 2 months ago and it only took us about 7 minutes to walk from one side of CC to the other LMAOO. The only reason I could see that people would think that it feels big is because the buildings are tall, but it ends there.
What actually constitutes DT Philly is debatable, but for some reason you insist on including a much larger land area in DT DC, than you'll give to DT Philly, which is ridiculous considering that DT Philly is much more densely populated over a much larger area, so it's bigger no matter how you slice it. Within the same land area your giving DT DC, Philly has, CC,University City, parts of South Philly, and Lower North Philly.

Yeah, but if I'm not Mistaken we were only talking about CC Philly and not the whole DT Philly as a whole, so if that's the case then CC is mad small to be comparing to DC's Whole DT area. DT Philly as a whole is still a lot smaller than DC's DT, but nevertheless it's still more Densely populated simply because it has more "Neighborhoods" (Which means more people living in DT Philly) than DC does and for a city that's more than twice the size as DC we all would expect that anyway's.


the City of Philly as a whole is bigger than DC "Landwise", but DC's DT as a whole is bigger than Philly's. <-- Now That's how you slice it.

How is DT Philly smaller than DT DC? At a one mile radious from the core, Philly has more people, at a 2 mile radious, Philly has more people, at a 5 mile radious Philly has more people, at a ten mile radious, Philly has more people. How is DT DC alot bigger than DT Philly again? Please no spin where you include 5 square miles for DC and a 1/2 a mile for Philly. Lets have an equal standard, which one is bigger in a 1 mile radious from the core.

Apparently "Baltimore" and "San Francisco" are codewords for "let's hijack the thread and turn it into a pissing match between Philadelphia and Washington DC". I wish i was surprised...

What are you talking about? Im not talking about the amount of people that it has Im talking about in sheer size. Block for Block DC's DT is way bigger than Philly's. Did you not know that? Did you know that DC's DT is the second largest DT only after Manhattan's DT?

I gotta bring this up.
People on here from certain cities talk entirely too much shxt about D.C. either directly or on the slick tip. Most of the time these people happen to be from Philly or NYC or SF. Posters from these cities od way too much dick eatin', especially Philly. So for the sake of this diverted topic I'm just going to go ham on Philly right quick. Philly is on NYC's nuts because they wanna be NYC so bad but they never will. Philly is NYC's hoe.

I think they have resentment because they we're once the capitol but D.C. was founded and that went away. Philly is the largest most pointless city in America as of now. Y'all can have ya'll 10 foot wide streets, crumbling rowhouses, horrible POS of a subway system, and fake NYC swag. Y'all too damn cocky for ya own good ya needa stay in ya place.

*****SHOTS FIRED*****

Ohh. I see you mean it takes up more space(sprawls more) not really that it's bigger. I guess that kinda makes sense considering that DC can't build up, so must build out.

Anyways, just to get back on topic Bmore is about as Southern as SF is Southwestern, so in that case neither of them are Southern.

Even going by the pick-and-choose land area comparison that some here are using, why is "size" of downtown more important than vibrancy and number of people living there? Doesn't make any sense to me. DMV, great pics of both cities, although imo Philly looks better out of those two pics, probably because the Liberty Place towers are shining.

And nobody in Philly ever pretends to be NYC, ever. In fact, at least on C-D it's always DC posters claiming they are better than every city, "besides NYC." DC posters on this forum bring up New York more than anyone else.
