A lot of people on this have been bashing New York City especially on this forum and I've never said one bad thing about Philadelphia.
Philadelphia can not be compared with a cosmopolitan and global city such as New York City.
Philadelphia is predominatly white while New York City is EXTREMLY diverse.
New York City has 2 million Hispanics, 2 Million Blacks, and 1 Million Asians. Also, the suburbs of NYC are mostly Hispanic, Black, and Asian. Queens is the most diverse county in the world. Philadelphia is probably one of the whitest cities in the U.S. while United States cities like New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and many others are diverse.

it's hard to tell if you are just trying to get a response or if you actually believe what you write. either way, who cares about new york?

According to city-data, Philadelphia is 39.5% white alone, Manhattan is 45.8% white alone, and Queens, Brooklyn (barely) and Staten Island have more whites than any other group. So either the OP is lying or just makes things up without figuring out if they are true or not. Either way, the result is the same.

Saying that Philadelphia "is probably one of the whitest cities in the US", which is completely false, seems to show that you don't really care about or bother to check facts, and mainly just want to make yet more very similar Philly-bashing posts.
I had a post deleted by a mod for calling you the T-word, so instead I'll just ask why you care sooo much about going out of your way to keep bashing Philly if you are so content with NYC? Or do you even live in NYC?

New York City is 33% white on a whole.
Queens is 27.6% white so it is not a majority because Queens is 27.5% Hispanic
Factually, Queens is the most diverse place in the world.
Bronx is majority Hispanic.
All in all NYC is more diverse.

LOL at "Philadelphia is probably one of the whitest cities in the US".

There is no racial group in the majority in Philadelphia.

You do realize you can try to support your statements with data right? Although they would negate most of your assertions.

New York City doesn't have one either
It is
33% White
29% Hispanic
23% Black
13% Asian
Much more diverse than Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is scary.
New York City is not and New York City has more Asians so New York is better because Philadelphia is run down.

Not exactly 'much more diverse', certainly 'much lower percentage of blacks' and slightly higher percentage of Asians and Hispanics (which can come from any race).
