Dept. Of Why Is This Still A Thing We Talk About: Philly Mag Wants To Talk About New Yorkers Moving To Philly Again
Look, we get it. You lived in New York. It was awesome. And then, you couldn’t afford it anymore. So you moved here. We’ve been talking about it (and avoiding talking about it) for years, so why does it keep coming up? Philadelphia Magazine figures that if you can give people a new, cutesy, nickname (“NY-Delphians”), and make sure the author is actually originally from the area, you can still make it a story. But, while the snobby-vibe the article gives off is palpable (Look at all of the quotes I got from my daycare mom friends!), the real reading of interest is in the comments. Our favorite is the one where a woman who lives in Brooklyn says she has her eyes on Philly in the future and will, “be rooting for Philly from the sidelines and keeping an eye it.” Of course, by “favorite” we mean “least favorite,” and by “least favorite” we mean “For the love of all that is holy can we stop talking about this.” Philly Mag, we didn’t think it was even possible anymore considering how low our expectations are, but we’re disappointed.
