A valley of humility between two mountains of conceit New York and Washington.
Some people say North Carolina is very Philadelphia, with the mountains of conceit being Virginia and South Carolina.

Haha, fuck man.

Philadelphia could be one of the most underestimated cities out there. It makes 18 on mastercards global cities list, #4 largest economy in the us, and yet a cnn reporter answers this question on air:

Guy: How will this effect the east?
Reporter: Well no doubt this will effect the important cities in the east, Boston, New York, Washington....

It's like the kid in school who wasn't ever taken seriously. Meh, Philadelphia sucks ass anyway.

1 more year when I get my degree, i'm getting the fuck out of that shithole! (philadelphia)

Cnn weather report: Rain will then spread into the big cities of Boston, New York and Dc.

A city on America's east coast best known for its cream cheese.
You don't have to go to Philadelphia to get a taste of Philly.

The City of Brotherly Love. The Birthplace of the United States. The home of Rocky Balboa. The largest city in Pennsylvania and 5th largest in the U.S. with 1.5 million in the city and about 5.5 million in the metro area in three states (PA, NJ and DE). Phily is a very historical city and few cities match its historical attractions: Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were drafted by the Continental Congress), the Liberty bell, the U.S. Constitution Center, the Franklin Institute, and the Betsy Ross House among others. Phily is also a major center for education (Drexel and Temple Universities), healthcare, culture, the arts and industry. It is home of the Third Federal Reserve Bank, the Philadelphia Mint and a major stock exchange. Philadelphia is considered one of America's fattest cities. The cholesterol-rich Phily Cheesesteak is everywhere and the people are generally unhealthy. The people also have annoying accents that almost make them sound like they are speaking form their nose. The people are crazy about their sports teams but have lowsy fans because they cheer for them when they win but curse them when they lose. How dumb. Phily is a very neat place to visit but you don't want to live there. The city is old, very poor and has many slums--some of the worst in the country. Sylvester Stallone ran through several of them while training for his fights. Philadelphia also ranks high in violent crime and has among the nation's highest homicide rates.
Philadelphia is a nice place to visit and with a diverse metropolitan profile but you don't want to live there. It would suck in general. Some natives include Bill Cosby, Kevin Bacon and Will Smith.
