What Bert Has To Say About Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington Metro Area

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. Philadelphia served as the nation’s first capital and cultural center before being replaced in these roles by Washington, D.C., and New York City, respectively. Since the Industrial Revolution, 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.
