American's dense older cities are amazing. I just don't get the appeal of the sprawltopian places American's now overwhelmingly desire these days.

Unfortunately much of Philly has suffered due to that Sprawl lovefest.Of its 6 M person region 95% of its wealthier residents live in the suburbs. Its a shame what has happened to alot of Philadlephia. It was originally meant to be one of Americas great cities and parts, like Center City, still are but alot of the city has seen better days.
