Lol. I know, right? I guess, in the end, it’s all subjective. I will say though that Atlanta’s downtown is substantially weaker than our core, and I would challenge anyone to debate that. They have some out neighborhoods, but from my many trips down there, I don’t find them all that impressive or special.

Back to the OP please^. A suggestion for posters to prevent other posters from calling out grammar errors- read your post a couple of times before hitting “done” and posting. Are you writing complete sentences? Does it make sense? And for all posters- be kind. If there is a post that you think breaks the terms of service, report it. If it just annoys you, move on.

We've just selected Philadelphia as our vacation destination for 2020. We'll be spending a week in your fair city and its environs. We're pretty stoked.

Give me a shout-out when you're headed this way - I'd appreciate the opportunity to meet you and show you around town.

I think city leadership has been very pro-active with ads for the city appearing all over Penn Station and in every other subway car in NY for some time.

I guess the question is how popular/desirable do you want Philadelphia to be? On the one hand, there are posters constantly lamenting the fact that the city is not held in the same regard as Manhattan, DC, San Francisco, etc. On the other hand, there are posters constantly saying that the popularity of those places has robbed them of their identity. Is it possible for Philadelphia to be held in higher esteem with the Creative Class and not have South Philly transformed into Chelsea or Hell's Kitchen?

When? Mid/late spring is the best time, imo.

What bugs me is how the homeless problem in SF doesn't seem to permanently alter peoples' perceptions of it. Granted the Bay Area is beautiful as a whole though.

Uh huh, Hell's Kitchen where's there's no hell now.

Philadelphia literally has a university devoted to the "creative class".

Why does it bug you? What does it matter what people think about it?
