New York City is big, like really big. Take the metro region into account, and it is perhaps the biggest city in the world.
Philadelphia was the first big American city I lived in for a few months. I was with a dot com. I would walk to work every morning, a 40 minute walk from U Penn near where I lived, near the movie theater. When I hit downtown, I'd look up. The buildings looked so mesmerizingly tall.
I was in Philadelphia for an event in January for a few hours. The city felt like a small town.
