i know. i made a post about this before asking why the minneapolis suburbs seem so segregated. Like you said edina and minnesota are like night and day. Yet you check out suburbs of philadelphia (lansdowne, upper darby, ridley park). there are still plenty of black people. the only suburbs in minny with a respectable percentage of blacks are brooklyn center and northside minneapolis.

more for your money.
no car inspections. trust me. sorry to say but i remember having to shell out plenty of money to get my car fixed for the smallest thing.
You are out of your mind. I have never heard anyone say the Philadelphia suburbs are bad. One the city isnt even bad, so thats false. And to even compare the suburbs to the city is outrageous. Philly burbs are arguably the best in the nation.

Lansdowne, upper darby, and ridley park are 3 towns. Ridley Park doesn't even have a large black population. You pick 3 towns that aren't the best out of all the towns in the area, and say they represent Philadelphia burbs. And if your the one who said people would rather live in new jersey or Delaware over the Pa side of the philly area, then you are ill informed.

Have you ever been outside of Philadelphia?

Go visit Scarsdale, Rye, Greenwich, in the NY area. Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Redwood City in the SF area. Rosslyn, Alexandria, Fairfax, Montgomery in the DC area. Go see suburbs of every large metro above 3 million then come back and say Philly has the best suburbs. Starting to think you Philly homers have never left your area the way you talk these clueless remarks and how other philly boosters just let their partners in crime say these outlandish things

Actually it's true, and we've got the biggest mall in the nation (by retail sq. footage) to go along with our awesome suburbs. Face it, Philly Rocks and so do its suburbs. You can take your 'homer' talk and shove it, hater.

Lets not forget he said Philly has more potential for growth but metro Minneapolis grew triple the rate as metro Philly Table of United States Metropolitan Statistical Areas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Also said Philly has the better economy than Minneapolis which is untrue Unemployment Rates for Metropolitan Areas.

The Flyers practice facility is in NJ so most of the Flyer family guys live around Voorhees but still alot of the single younger players live in Center City.

The guys making big money (Halladay,Hamels,Howard,Utley etc) and all of the Sixers live in PA..

Alot of the Eagles players do gravitate to South jersey. The only thing I can think of is its a bit easier to navigate into the city by car.
