Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth-most-populous city in the United States.
According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the population of the city proper was 1,526,006. The Greater Philadelphia metropolitan
area has a population of 6.1 million and is the country's fifth-largest metro area.
The city, which lies about 80 miles (130 km) southwest of New York City,is also the nation's fourth-largest consumer media market,
as ranked by the Nielsen Media Research.
It is the county seat of Philadelphia County, with which it is coterminous. Popular nicknames for Philadelphia include Philly
and The City of Brotherly Love, from the literal meaning of the city's name in Greek "brotherly love", compounded from philos "love",
and adelphos "brother"
A commercial, educational, and cultural center, Philadelphia was the social and geographical center of the original 13 American colonies.
It was a centerpiece of early American history, host to many of the ideas and actions that gave birth to the American Revolution and independence. It was the most populous city of the young United States, although by the first census in 1790, New York City had overtaken it. Philadelphia served as one of the nation's many capitals during the Revolutionary War and after. After the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, the city served as the temporary national capital from 1790 to 1800 while Washington, D.C., was under construction.
Philadelphia is central to African American history; its large black population predates the Great Migration.
