City smackdown: Philadelphia
Why I came home to Philly
I've never been to Detroit, but it saddens me to see the blight and hear the story of a city that has lost more than a million residents since it's heyday of the mid-1950s. I wish the town well, but Philly has been a well-kept secret for a long time for which the word is spreading. This is a place in which you can make a life for yourself.
