Talk:Center City, Philadelphia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


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.

I have discussed this with many individuals, but it's no longer a debate as the City has a report which defines the boundaries. For several years now, the city of Philadelphia has published a report titled State of Center City. This report defines "Core" Center City with the Southern boundary being Pine Street and the Northern boundary being Vine Street. The report further describes "Greater" Center City with the Southern boundary being Tasker Avenue and the Northern boundary being Girard Avenue. This is significant because statistics referring to Center City factually refer to the "Greater" Center City area. An example is the 2015 statistic - Center City's population second only to Midtown Manhattan's. This refers to Greater Center City - Tasker Ave to Girard Ave. Rvenne01 15:05, 27 January 2016 (EST)

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)

Some idiot vandal moved this page from Center City to "Downtown". How do we change it back??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (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)
