... And they're actually well-thought-out reasons.
Obviously, all of you regular readers out there already know that I love
Philadelphia. For those who are not regular readers, all you need to do
is go through some of my past blog posts.
It's where I was born (Well, in Abington; so technically, 3 miles
outside of city limits), it's where I went to school (Go Explorers),
it's where I live (What's up, Roxborough), and it's where I will be
managing my first, local real estate office in the coming months ahead
(again; What's up, Roxborough).
But hey, because I have love for the City of Brotherly Love
opinion can sometimes be considered biased; it's cool. What I have done
in the past with my blog, and what I continue to do today, is try to
provide insightful information about Philadelphia (and its surrounding
area) through local news, as well as through national/international
It helps keep things interesting, and takes some of the biases out.Zillow
recently published an article about Philadelphia, on Bloomberg.com
, and they did a really nice job
. Not only does it start out by saying what locals already know, "If youâ€™ve seen the Liberty Bell and had a cheesesteak, youâ€™ve likely spent a
day in Philadelphia; but beyond the tourist sites and skyscrapers lies a
city of neighborhoods undergoing a cultural renaissance
," but it really goes into some decent detail regarding why each one of the "10 Good Reasons" is true.
I would not be sharing this article
, and blogging about it, if I didn't agree with their logic myself.
Local Philadelphian Kristen Hampton
was quoted as saying, "Neighborhoods
and the communities they foster are still highly valued, and neighbors
look out for each other. Also, this is a city full of history, cultural
richness, and some of the best food youâ€™ll ever taste
.â€ That statement could not be any more true.
Nice job, Kristen!
It's a great article
, and some well-deserved praise for Philly; enjoy.
