18 percent

Percentage of Philadelphia households that reported evidence of rodents, the largest percentage among the 25 U.S. cities broken out in data from the latest federal American Housing Survey. When it came to vermin of the cockroach variety, New Orleans, Houston and Miami topped the list of infested cities.

The most vermin-infested US cities

I worked in Philadelphia for several years. It was by far the filthiest city I have ever been in. Trash thrown everywhere, no city pride. And the crime - don't get me started.

A shame.

I used to live in Philadelphia... and then around it (Bensalem, Warminster, Royersford). A lot of the city proper is very old and dirty. I wouldn't really want to move back.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Although I was born there, I grew up across the river in South Jersey. We used to call it Filthydelphia. Sad to see it still hasn't cleaned up its act.

I visited there many years ago. Sure, I saw the filth, but every city has a character of its own, and it didn't bother me. I enjoyed my visit.

Oh man, I hate when a city gets bashed without the natives coming to its defense.

Well, I was born and have lived in Philly all my life. I've not had an issue with the Rat Population at all. I rather enjoy their company to be honest!!

When you let people use your city name as a brand of cheese, you get mice.

Was Lovecraft writing about Philly in his work, The Moon Bog?
Is Philly the city at the bottom of the bog that Denys Barry so badly wanted to see?

Hmmm. (Rubbing Chin)wow

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...
