so are Philadelphians really that negative? I'm contemplating a move from Ohio, and now I'm a bit concerned from some of these "this place sucks", "Philly has a negative-mind-set" type posts.

Are Philadelphians really that negative-minded? I can't imagine so but I'm interested in your takes on the subject.

The negative attitudes are overwhelmingly in reference to the city, as opposed to the suburbs. Even though many (myself included) are very positive about Philly overall, others sometimes focus on the negative aspects. That said, if you're moving to the 'burbs, you really needn't worry about this discussion.

I am not sure why you think Philly would not accomodate sick people. We have some of the best hospitals in the country here. I do not know much about where to get cosmetic surgery but I would imagine that most if not all surgeons would be highly qualified.

Geez, people in Philly aren't monsters. A little rough at times, sure, but they're not going to persecute a sick/injured person who's there for treatment.

Center City living in Philly is awesome, its very comfortable, affordable, vibrant and safe. Afterall, it has the third largest center city/downtown in America after NYC and Chicago.
All the negativity comes from people who can't afford to or hasn't live in Center City Philly. Just stay away from the 'hood rats and their neiogborhoods, then you'll be safe.

With all due respect this comment was somewhat elitist, don't you think? Since Center City has namely become a playground reserved for 95,000 of Philadelphia's wealthy socialites, it's to be expected that housing prices are now unattainable there for we in the middle-class. I'm an aspiring CPA, and my partner is an aspiring salon owner, and I don't even think our joint salaries would be able to afford us anything decent in Center City. As such if I'm forced to leave Scranton due to the fact that the locals think flipping burgers is suitable for those with Ph.D.'s, then I'll be searching for a neighborhood near downtown that I can help to gentrify in order to be a part of the city's impending renaissance. I'm truly very excited with your new mayor, Mr. Nutter, and I feel confident that he can help to finally bridge the socioeconomic gap in the city between the downtown elite and the "rest." You can't just let those neighborhoods all sit and rot forever.
