I fail to understand why forumers and people in general don't give Philadelphia the attention it truly deserves. It's CLEARLY the 2nd most urban place in America after New York and Center City is the most vibrant place in the country after Midtown Manhattan. Not to mention Philly has the largest collection of narrow streets, the most active bike culture, and the Mecca of American History. Philly deserves as much national attention as New York of DC and certainly more than SF, Chicago, LA, or Boston. Also, don't you agree that the Mummers Parade should replace the Rose Bowl for national broadcast and they should show Philly's 4th of July celebration instead of New York's? Or Thanksgiving parade, when Philly has the nation's oldest parade they decide to televise fecking New York.
