No offense but why are you always comparing Philly to other citites. There are a lot of things Philly doesnt have that other cities have. Then there are a lot of things Philly has that others dont have. Philadelphia is not every other city. Every city doesnt need to have the same thing. They should all be unique.
I dont think Phillys transit sucks. Sure its no New York but it isnt the worst. The airport is doing pretty fine, a lot of renovations going on....
And anyway dont we already have a hotel on the riverfront? If you noticed theres a lot of work being done over there. Go to skyscraperpage.com to check out construction progress threads.
