Philadelphia

'''Philadelphia''' (

In 1682, William Penn founded the city to serve as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony (Province of Pennsylvania). During the American Revolution, Philadelphia played an instrumental role as a meeting place for the Founding Fathers of the United States, who signed the Declaration of Independence (United States Declaration of Independence) in 1776 and the Constitution (United States Constitution) in 1787. Philadelphia was one of the nation's capitals (List of capitals in the United States) during the Revolutionary War (American Revolutionary War), and the city served as the temporary U.S. capital while Washington, D.C., was under construction. During the 19th century, Philadelphia became a major industrial center and railroad hub that grew from an influx of European immigrants. It became a prime destination for African Americans during the Great Migration (Great Migration (African American)) and surpassed two million occupants by 1950. Following numerous civil rights protests and riots (race riots), the city experienced decades of heavy crime and neared bankruptcy by the 1980s. Revitalization began in the 1990s with gentrification turning around many neighbors and reversing its decades-long trend of population loss.

The city is the center of economic activity in Pennsylvania, and is home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange and seven Fortune 1000 companies. It is also known for its arts and culture. The cheesesteak and soft pretzel (Pretzel) are emblematic of Philadelphia cuisine (Cuisine of Philadelphia), which is shaped by the city's ethnic mix. The city has more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American city, Gateway to Public Art in Philadelphia, ''Fairmount Park Art Association''. and Philadelphia's Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world.
