Yo! Philly’s the "Next Great City!"

Well, all I can say is, “It’s about time.” My favorite city, Philadelphia (despite my spending a lot of time in NYC lately), is finally getting well-deserved respect.

National Geographic Traveler names Philly as the nation’s “Next Great City” in its October issue. According to this AP story (via CNN), the magazine described Philly as “a city that has been greatly overlooked.”

“It’s the last great opportunity for anyone who wants a terrific urban life in the Northeast,” said Keith Bellows, the magazine’s editor-in-chief.
