Besides, just because it stretches that far doesn't mean it's better.

Pretty obvious answer too. Have you ever been there? Their transportation system is literally WOAT. I mean, really WOAT.

On top of that, it's smoggy, hot, humid, and a healthy percentage of its people are drug traffickers or obsessed with the movie industry.

Sounds like Ceremony wouldn't like Ultra.

Once it got dark, you could see the lights for almost a mile

Isn't the road traffic meant to be appalling.

Didn't use public transport there, rented car. I think, it was years ago, don't really remember.

Was a lot of fun though

Philly has a good transportation system. A couple neighborhoods I know are kind of off te SEPTA grid, but it is solid. Well behind Northeast neighbors NYC and DC though, but those are world class transportation systems from what I hear.

Also, deficient mode's list of terrible US cities is perfect. **** sprawl.
