Some Philly neighborhoods have better names than others. Like Devil’s Pocket, or Kingsessing, Hantraft or Fishtown.
Philadelphia does neighborhoods right.
And then some smartypants came up with Midtown Village, a “meh” name is we ever heard one.
Midtown Village may be located in Midtown, a dull word for a non-dull place, but surely it’s no village. It’s in the heart of the Gayborhood (does that make residents Village People?), the center of Center City, a gritty and thriving slice of urban life.
Couldn't there be a better, more vital name for such a place?
Hey, it’s in the city, pal. If we want a village, we’ll go to Vermont.
