Too lazy to pack everything and move??

I've posted this question before. If you won the lottery, would you move? If people were honest I would venture its overwhelmingly a YES. But they ain't honest

Oh and you can get excellent cheese steaks out side Philly. OR you can drive to Philly to get a Steves (The best)

I stay because I like it here. Really. This city fits me like a glove in lots of ways. And yes, I've seen other parts of the country and have been mostly unimpressed. If I win the lottery, I'd move to a better house and also vacate during January and February. Other than that, I'm staying put.

1.There's political corruption everywhere to some degree.
2. I don't believe the police dept as a whole is corrupt.
3. I believe people, with the means to move, stay for various reasons. Culture, nightlife, family and friends, finances ( you may be able to move, but find it would be financially better to remain here), and believe it or not..some people just like the hustle and bustle that comes with living in the big city.

If those things didn't exist then it wouldn't be Philadelphia.

I moved here 4 years ago from Boston. Before that I lived in New York. I've lived in the Bay Area for a year. Philadelphia is my favorite so far.
