This AP article says that Philthydelphia will be the next great city of trendiness.
I grew up outside of Philly. Even living in Delaware, I probably still count as living "outside of Philly." All I can say is that anyone who thinks this town will reach new heights must not have flown through the Philadelphia International Airport. Philly is better than it used to be. But scrape the surface and it is still gritty, grey, and generally nasty. Once the Liberty Bell cracked, it was all down hill from there.
I would pick Baltimore as the next great city of trendiness between New York and DC. I flown through BWI and I'm not looking back. The problem is that Baltimore and DC are slowly merging, so it doesn't count as a separate entity anymore. Perhaps if the trend were short lived enough it might still count.
