Estately Real Estate Search analyzed 11 different data sets to arrive at its rankings of which actual cities most resemble the fictional Springfield portrayed on “The Simpsons.”  The chart below shows the criteria as well as each state’s ranking in each category. As you’ll see, Pennsylvania does well not only with power plants, which we knew, but with businesses named “Moe’s,” which I would not personally have assumed.

    I assume you mean Springfield in Delaware County which is the postal address and zip code of Springfield, Pa. – there’s also a Springfield Township in Montgomery County, one in Bucks County, and I think a couple others in more distant counties in Pa. (Why? Because in general, townships are subdivisions of counties, not necessarily “places” and not “towns” – boroughs are the closest things to “towns” in Pa. Look at Lower Merion township in Mont co. – Lower Merion, Pa.? What’s that? It’s Merion, Bala-Cynwyd, Wynnewood, Gladwyne, etc.).
