Is Philadelphia Your Favorite American City?

I'm just curious about those who have visited the U.S. if you think that Philly is in a class of its own when compared to overrated places like New York, Chicago, and San Francisco (boring yuppies' town).

Hell No!!

Philly is just ugly as hell. Much of the Philly is Ghetto. Even the skyline is very lame, unattractive and very small.

Only thing Philly has over NYC, Chi town is people are friendly unlike NYC where everyone is rude. Hence the city of brotherly love I guess.

NYC is favorite by far.

Believe it or not, Philadelphia actually is my favourite American city lol. I personally do find it much easier to enjoy than NYC and Boston. I also like that it is located in close proximity to NYC and not too far away from D.C, so you don't really feel isolated.

Well, to not make this post too long I'll give you 10 reasons why no other city holds half a candle to the City of Brotherly Love...
