Philadelphia is notable for being the largest city in the country having a healthy black middle-class. From the poshness of Rittenhouse Square, to the melting pot that is [[GangsterLand South Philly]], to the bohemian artists *cough*{{hipster}}s*cough* of Northern Liberties, to the hard knocks of [[WrongSideOfTheTracks North Philly and parts of the Southwest]], to the strange blend of professors and students, immigrants, and poor folk who inhabit West Philly, to the quaint tree-lined streets of the towns-within-a-city of the Northwest, to the to the suburban sprawl of the "Great Northeast," to the unparalleled richness of history that is Old City, Philadelphia has everything one could ask for in its many neighborhoods. It has been a very large city for a long, long time. In the years before UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, it was the second largest English-speaking City in the world, after London.

Added DiffLines:

* Jedi Mind Tricks (Vinnie Paz was born in Italy but raised in Philly, and Jus Allah is originally from New Jersey, but the group formed in Philly and is probably the most recognizable face of the city's contributions to hip-hop aside from The Roots)
* Music/{{Vektor}} (originally from Arizona, but Dave [=DiSanto=], Frank Chin, and Blake Anderson all relocated to Philly and the band is currently based out of the city)

The residents, when it comes to sports, are infamous for being ''[[SeriousBusiness extremely]]'' vocal about their beloved teams. There have been a couple of incidents involving [[SantaClaus famous ad campaign figures]] in the past that have turned into the city's own NeverLiveItDown moment. It doesn't help that some in the city and particularly the city's media like reliving those particular moments. While criticism about the tendency to react vocally (booing in crowds, sarcasm and snide comments individually) certainly has been well earned, the city itself has not had any more incidents than any other city. (Admittedly, the last couple of years when Veterans Stadium was in operation, they actually had ''a court'' in the basement simple because of the sheer number of law-breakers at Eagles games.) This even extends to pseudo-sports, as quite a few notable wrestling promotions (most notably Wrestling/RingOfHonor and the defunct Wrestling/{{ECW}}) are based in Philadelphia, and most of them attract rowdy, loud, and obnoxious crowds. Also, they seem to have a problem with naming their hockey/basketball stadium- built as a replacement for the old Spectrum (since razed), it was first named ''[=CoreStates=] Center'', after a local bank. Then that bank got bought out, and was renamed to ''First Union Center''. They merged with another bank, hence becoming ''Wachovia Center''. Then Wachovia was bought out by Wells Fargo of California, so it's now ''Wells Fargo Center''.
