Philadelphia is less than 2 hours from NYC so it's pretty easy to compare. How can anyone there claim Philly is more "yuppie dominated" than NYC?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts out workforce numbers for metros where they break it down by sector. I'm too lazy to look for it now but I believe that Portland has the largest percentage of its' workforce in manufacturing among 1,000,000+ metros. There are actually a lot of surprises on the list, Minneapolis and Detroit have similar manufacturing workforces for example. A lot of the perceptions about cities that are diffused through stereotypes, the media and the internet are not particularly accurate.

LOL, What are you talking about? Who is claiming that? Philly has 4 votes on the poll, NYC has 14.

Philly is definitely less Yuppie dominated than NYC thankfully.
