The two most diverse neighborhoods are likely West Mount Airy in NW Philly and University City in West Philly. I believe Roxborough may be diversifying more these days as well. I'd like to think that Center City is pretty diverse as well... but with so many people working and socializing there it's hard to tell who lives there unless you look at your own neighborhood or apartment building.

I agree with W. Mt Airy. East Oaklane is also fairly diverse, mainly white, African-American, with a large Korean community close-by (we're talking blocks), and Jewish a little farther north.

center city & surrounding areas appear to be more diverse than that census indicates. but like tone said, its hard to determine who actually lives here vs commuting.

you can chalk me up as another "asian indian",or whatever its called, living in cc
