Considering Philly's population (nearly 1.5 million), its land area doesn't seem too huge to me. At 135 sq miles it's a little larger than Queens NY, and it's much, much smaller than the sunbelt cities in a similar range of population.

Excellent photos! Philly is one of my favorite cities as well. Being able to walk from bustling Center City to the quieter, narrow streets of Old City, down funky South Street, and over to University City all within a short period is quite a treat.

Ill have to say right now im in NYC at college but I grew up near Hartford, CT and I love Hartford but the city is comprised of 17.5 square miles. That figures also about the same for places like New Haven and Providence so far me 135 sq miles seemed enourmas.

That's the most comprehensive Center City Philly threads I've ever seen. This should be made a sticky on the Philadelphia page, in my opinion. Your pix were all quite good and your new-found love of the city is obvious. Phildelphia certainly has its fair share of neighborhoods which suffer from crime and poverty, but Center City, it must be said, has become one of America's great urban spots.
