For this to really work, there should be a poll thread for each of the top 10 cities in the US, and then a face-off of all the winners.

Agreed, while I like Society hill and think it a great neighborhood, to me it is at best the third or fourth best area of Philadelphia. Honestly Rittenhouse would seem to be the obvious choice here

Personally I would choose the village over the UWS, but that may be me

Yeah, that should have been Seattle's representative on this list. Best urban neighborhood in the country? Belltown's not even the best urban neighborhood in Seattle.

I only ask this because I would have presumed that in Boston the Beacon Hill neighborhood would have trumped the Back Bay. Also, when it comes to Philadelphia "Center City" is one giant neighborhood, of which Society Hill is a sub-neighborhood. I'm not trying to be picky; I'm just curious.
Beacon Hill is mostly residential and doesn't really have much. Back Bay has it all.

I thought this same thing too. Society Hill is very nice, but kind of bland - more like a residential museum of colonial architecture.

The Rittenhouse area has a lot more to offer while still being architecturally interesting.

I definitely feel we are missing a TON of notable urban neighborhoods.
