Philly to Become NYC’s Seventh Borough?

By ·

Well, the Scoop has certainly enjoyed crouching in New York’s prominent shadow while it lasted. Seems Mayor Bloomberg is making a big push to spruce up New York City’s waterfront property, and he wants to dub the city’s shoreline the “sixth borough.”[1] Where does that leave us, we who were so branded just a little more than five years ago in the New York Times[2]? A city with fewer New York transplants? Now, that would be a shame.
