Philadelphia Quick Guide
Philly's unique blend of history, art, culture and entertainment, along with being the birthplace of the United States, make it a fascinating place to visit or call home.
Philadelphia's economy is driven by banking, biotechnology, manufacturing, tourism and trade.
Once known as the "City of Brotherly Love," the city now sends the updated message that it's "the city that loves you back." Philadelphia prides itself on both its vital contribution to American history - and the Philly cheese steak. Visitors will find any number of historic venues to learn more about this important center of early American government - and just as many locations to sample the savory steak-and-cheese sandwich this city is known for worldwide.
Many city agencies, departments and offices can be found at the Municipal Services Building, 1401 JFK Blvd. Also, the city's "Wireless Philadelphia" initiative will make online access to city services even more convenient for those who wish to do business on a computer with wireless access with just the click of a mouse or a few keystrokes.
