More of that "Sixth Borough" crap

The New York Times waxes poetic about the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia. I'm afraid that they kind of lost me at the headline "A Philadelphia Neighborhood Wears Its Grit Well" (heh), although it's mostly a restaurant teaser.

Sixth Borough no New Yorker would ever consider living in?

The wheels of progress when it comes to urban renewal seem to grind very, very slowly here in Philly. Too bad: the city has so much potential.

(yes, this is coming from a snooty ex-Portland resident)

I dunno -- plenty of New Yorkers relocate here when they decide that "quality of life" (and maybe affordable housing) factor into their calculations.

But I wasn't making an argument, just referencing a meme from the New York Times, which used that phrase to describe Philly sometime this summer -- oh, here it is.
