The city of Philadelphia is located at the confluence of the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers. Philadelphia has been regarded as both the lovely but jaded great lady and the overgrown and sickly spinster of American cities. A more realistic view of Philadelphia, on the other hand, reveals it to be a very modern and vigorous city, rising in gracious counterpoint to the deep serenity of an older city that has provided gentle but firm intellectual, economic, and humanitarian direction to the nation at whose birth it served as midwife.
