My point was it's not all that diverse because it's mostly just two different groups. I'd say the same thing if it was mostly Puerto Rican and Irish.

Center City is not a neighborhood, it's an area made up of neighborhoods. Yes, some of those neighborhoods (they're all nice) have diversity, but I can't think of one that has much of a black population ... I'll leave it at that.

Mount Airy is one heckuva fine neighborhood. It has a few rough edges here and there, but the good (and beautiful) far outweigh the bad.

I think they had to downplay philly to make it 4th on the list and to make it seem to fit in better.

Society Hill should have been there instead of Mount Airy.

Mt. airy is a beautiful neighborhood and is a favorite of many. Question for the board do you think Mt.airy is a tad OVERRATED??? They always talk about mt.airy diversity. However there are other neighborhoods in the city that are more diverse. These neighborhoods might be poorer or less educated than mt.airy but they are diverse as well. Opinions please thanks.

my opinion? Diversity is overrated.

I am not by any means an expert on Mount Airy and not even sure if it includes Chestnut Hill, but it is a big surprise to me it was rated on top, and wonder exactly what the criteria was for the rating.
