Philadelphia

Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the sixth-most-populous city in the United States.
In 2008, the population of the city proper was estimated to be more than 1.54 million, while the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan area's population of 5.8 million made it the country's fifth largest. The city, which lies about 46 miles southwest of New York City, is the nation's fourth-largest urban area by population and its fourth-largest consumer media market as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research. It is the county seat of Philadelphia County, with which it is coterminous. Popular nicknames for Philadelphia include Philly and The City of Brotherly Love, from the literal meaning of the city's name in Greek (Greek: "brotherly love", compounded from philos "love", and adelphos "brother").
A commercial, educational, and cultural center, Philadelphia was once the second-largest city in the British Empire (after London), and the social and geographical center of the original 13 American colonies. It was a centerpiece of early American history, host to many of the ideas and actions that gave birth to the American Revolution and independence. It was the most populous city of the young United States, although by the first census in 1790, New York City had overtaken it. Philadelphia served as one of the nation's many capitals during the Revolutionary War and after. After the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, the city served as the temporary national capital from 1790 to 1800 while Washington, D.C., was under construction. Philadelphia is central to African American history. Many of its larger suburbs such as Chester, Pennsylvania; Wilmington, Delaware; Camden, New Jersey; and Trenton, New Jersey (sometimes included in the New York metropolitan area) have African American majorities. This community has been large since before the Great Migration, and despite area civil rights gains, continues to be affected by poverty and high crime. The area, in common with most of Pennsylvania, also has a very large population of Italian Americans.

B-

Content good, some grammatical issues, all in all a good report on the city of Philadelphia. Of course, you lost some points because this is Theoretical Particle Physics and the essay was supposed to address quantum mechanics of light photons in the event horizon of a black hole.

Philly has lots of character. Walk around in Olde City and imagine what it was like during Colonial times while you dart in and out of high-end craft and art galleries. Then walk over to Amada and have one of the best meals in your life before you take the subway down to Citizen's Bank Park and see some exciting baseball in South Philly. Come visit us!

You forgot about the obligatory cheesesteak run at Pat's or Gino's. Pat's is better - don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Yes, I should delete this bit of spam, but the responses have entertained me. :) Carry on.

i can only assume that those who speak positively of philly either do not live here, or only come to the civilized areas on business trips. else you work for the tourism industry. either way, carry on.
