Profile

The “City of Brotherly Love,” a direct translation of its name from the Greek language, is one of the ten largest metropolitan areas in the United States. The city has prospered as an important port and manufacturing center. Today, it’s part of an economic corridor of large cities stretching down the East Coast from Boston to Washington, D.C. “Philly” offers a full set of big-city amenities comparable to those of most major cities. The majority of the land between the historic district and the Schuylkill River to the west resembles a typical large U.S. city with a mix of old and new structures. Large Fairmount Park contains many of the area’s museums and historic buildings. Although not known for steel production like many of its Pennsylvania neighbors, the area is a center for several industries, most notably the chemical industry and financial services.
