Center City Renaissance
The Inquirer has been running articles on the "renaissance" of center city for the past two days. You can also read them online, though you may need to subscribe (for free). Go to www.philly.com and look under "Business" for "Center city retail resurgence." You will find yesterday's article about residential growth as well on that page. One news of interest: Philadelphia has the third largest downtown population (88,000) in the country, behind only New York and Chicago.
