NoLibs is Philly's Williamsburg, Apparently

New, 4 comments

Gawker, guided by a desire to compare every city to New York City, has compiled a list of Williamsburgs and Bushwicks in other cities. At least no one's described Philly as the sixth borough this time, right?

Northern Liberties claimed the title of Philly's Williamsburg, and Fishtown was voted as Philly's Bushwick. A quick look at Gawker's spread sheet reveals that Northern Liberties and Fishtown won handily, but South Philly, West Philly, Manayunk, and Passyunk also received nominations.

What do you think? Does Philly even have a Williamsburg or Bushwick? Are there other neighborhoods that ought to have been nominated? Let us know in the comments, or hit the tipline.
