I never understood that. I visited Philadelphia, being warned that the people there can be rude, mean, or dangerous but met really friendly, down to earth people. Isn't it the City of Brotherly Love?

Philadelphians will usually tell you exactly how they feel and what they're thinking. Some like it, others don't.
And that isn't to say everyone is like that here, but I think the realness is refreshing compared to other places.

People misunderstand what "brotherly love" is. It's not always lovey dovey.

This. Sometimes brotherly love includes punching your brother in the face, but god help anyone else who punches him.

The same can be said for any major city in the country... people need to use their brain instead of assuming that 1.5 million people all act the same way.

Other cities in the Northeast like New York and Baltimore have the same reputation. That's just the mold that has been cut out for the region. And then of course, there is the constant media baiting of the "disgusting Philly sports fan."

We've visited Philly a number of times over the last decade, and have had a wonderful time each visit. Coming from NYC & Boston, we have found people in Philadelphia refreshingly nice & easy going.

I recently moved from Philly after living there for many years. Currently in TN and am delighted and amazed how friendly people can really be. Never experienced this in Philadelphia.
