Philadelphia is a city defined by icons - the Liberty Bell, the cheesesteak, the Rocky statue - but its true spirit is not as easily depicted. It's an intangible cocktail of humility and pride, the past and the future. You'll see it in Philly's cobblestone streets, historic monuments, an ever-evolving skyline, and in the eyes of the 1.5 million people who proudly call this city (the fifth-most populous in the U.S.) home. And why wouldn't they be proud? The City of Brotherly Love is where the Continental Congress first convened, where our nation's Founding Fathers lived and breathed, and where the American Dream was born on that fateful day in 1776.
