"Center City Housing: The Rebound Continues." That's the inspiring title of a report that takes the dainty term "Center City" and transforms it into a capacious duffle bag of a phrase. According to the Center City District and Central Philadelphia Development Corporation, "Center City" comprises the "Core" (between Vine and Pine, river to river) and "Extended Center City" (everything between Vine and Girard and Pine and Tasker), which—when taken together—are called "Greater Center City." In total, that's eight zip codes and roughly 18 neighborhoods. In other words, Point Breeze just got promoted.
