National Geographic Recognizes Philadelphia as The Next Great City

Filed under: Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 12:11 pm

My FAVORITE city: Philadelphia!  This is where I live, eat, sleep, work, and play.  I love this City!  And it looks like we are finally getting the recognition we deserve from folks all around.  Even National Geographic has published an article called Next Great City: Philly, Really.  Here is a brief excerpt for the article:

"For years, I’ve been hearing great things about this city of 1.4 million on the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers. Newspaper articles speak of innovative development projects. Friends return from visits amazed that the nightlife is actually lively. "It’s no longer D.C. on a bad hair day," as one jokes.

Philadelphia, I discover, comprises 152 distinct neighborhoods, ranging from working-class South Philly to yuppified Manayunk to ivied University City to up-and-coming Northern Liberties and Fishtown. But it is the Center City, the heart of downtown, that’s energizing the rebirth. Trendy restaurants and condominiums abound. A soon-to-be-completed Cesar Pelli skyscraper, the Cira Centre, just across the Schuylkill River, forms a daring twist in the cityscape. The striking Kimmel Center, with its digital-age design, is the new home of the Philadelphia Orchestra."
