Travel & Leisure: Philly Better Than NYC. In the latest and greatest online survey from Travel & Leisure magazine, they asked online readers to rank 35 U.S. Cities on food, people, nightlife, and more. And Philly did pretty well. Among the best categories for Philly:
- Historical Sites/Monuments (#1)
- Sports-crazed (#1)
- Classical music (#2)
- Street food (#2)
- Hamburgers (#2)
Meanwhile, some where we ranked at the bottom:
- Cleanliness (#30)
- Safety (#25)
- Friendly (#25
The rankings are not perfect or overly scientific, as The20’s @CristinMcGrath confirms but supports.
@CristinMcGrath Wha-wha-what?! Philly beat NYC? Um, I fully expect pigs with wings to emerge from the icy pits of Hell in seconds. http://www.travelandleisure.com/americas-favorite-cities/2011
So let’s just score one for Philly. Take that, New York.
