Boundaries[edit]

The article says that Center City extends river to river, South Street to Spring Garden Street. Some people say that it's South to Vine (which coincides with the original boundaries of the city), and that's alright too. But it also said that Northern Liberties was a part of CC, which it's not; NL goes roughly from Spring Garden to Girard, and that's what our article says. Edited to reflect this.

third most populated CBD?[edit]

The article currently ends by noting that CC is one of "the more populated central business districts in the United States." I have often heard that CC is the third largest residential CBD, after NYC and Chicago, but i don't have evidence for this. Does anyone have a reference for this? Or is it OK to edit it without proof? WashWest 16:56, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Vandal[edit]

Some idiot vandal moved this page from Center City to "Downtown". How do we change it back??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.20.228.140 (talk) 20:27, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

I moved it back. It looks like the same editor went on a page move spree. Considering his history, it looks like he ought to be blocked again. -- Austin Murphy (talk) 21:04, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Curse of Billy Penn?[edit]

Is the content about the Curse of Billy Penn relevant to the Neighborhood Features section? I don't believe it is. Radiocolin (talk) 20:05, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
