Love it, they do their own thing. It's not trying to be DC or NYC, just Philly.

I love Center City. I love Manayunk. I loved the old PCC trolley cars. I love Fairmount Park. I loved the Zoo, though I haven't been since I was a small kid. I love the housing stock in Old City, parts of Northern Liberties, and many other nabes. I wonder about areas I haven't been to in years. Places like Kensington where my grandfather grew up, and have only seen mentioned in recent years in the crime articles in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Main Line suburbs are nice. The countryside beyond is beautiful. I love going to visit family in Bucks County. Rolling hills, streams, stone mills, covered bridges. It's stunning, especially now in Autumn.

Philly is an amazing town! I'm glad there's so much love here for it! Just this morning, I was driving on Kelly Drive, thinking how beautiful the leaves are reflecting over the Schuylkill river. (despite today's rain) I just love Fairmont Park!

I took this in late August while biking up Kelly Drive:

Well it is the 6th largest city in the US and with Houston and Phoenix both "cities" without "suburbs," it is fourth if you're looking for density of urbanization.
