When there are hot chicks on the street, which philly has a lot of, I'd rather the sidewalks and streets be shorter.

Like the ice breakers commercial - NYC / DC = public space, Philly = personal space

I love narrow streets and alleys anywhere. When we were last in Philly, I went on a few neighborhood walks, and I always wandered into the alleys and side streets and found some of the most interesting houses.

We drove there and I have a Fiat, and though I didn't drive around the city much, it was the trick for getting in and unloading, then scooting up to the parking garage, then driving back out.
