No, sorry. I constantly stop by Philly on my way to DC for some authentic cheesesteak, and I'm so disappointed by the city every damn time. If it wasn't for the cheesesteaks, I would never set foot in the place. Give me Pittsburg any day of the week.

Where do you go for cheesesteaks? I went to the famous Geno's in South Philly once or twice and it was just so-so.

I personally like Tony Luke's. But I also eat at Pats every once in a while. If you go to Pat's though, get it without onions.

Yeah, stopping by for cheesesteaks gives you great exposure to the city (especially since most of the famous places are in the outer limits), and you should probably learn how to spell Pittsburgh before you praise it .

Most people in the know aren't Pat's/Geno's fans. I like Steve's. Others prefer Dallesandro's, Ishkabibble's, Tony Luke's, etc. etc. etc.

Wow, you got me, I left out the H in Pittsburgh.

I never said all I've done is stop by for cheesesteaks, I said it's the only reason I still go back. I did part of my undergraduate in UPenn before I transferred to Colombia.

No one leaves the "H" out of Pittsburgh if they're even slightly familiar with the city (which I happen to love, by the way). No reason to cry over it though, just remember it's not the city in Kansas.

And it's clear that you view the city in an extremely outdated light and refuse to correct that perception, despite the fact that you frequently have the opportunity to do so. The U City Area has especially evolved in recent years. Oh well, that's your loss.

When typing on an iPad, it's relatively easy to make minor spelling mistakes. It's not that big of a deal.

I wouldn't say I'm overtly familiar with Pittsburgh. However, the few times I've visited, I found it quite beautiful in stark contrast to Philly.

NYC isn't exactly known for its beauty, though it, like Philly, does have its naturally scenic portions. If you had ever bothered to visit the lush, green, rolling hills of Mt. Airy/Chestnut Hill, you'd be aware of this--just one of a great many things of note beyond City Hall and "a stupid bell." But by all means, keep limiting yourself to cheesesteaks; it's much easier to keep up that false narrative when all you do is stop for fast food on Are-a-gone Avanoo.
