It really is the new thing for certain cities which experienced population declines for decades. Population ticked up just a bit for the first time in decades in this urban hellhole. For so long so much policy has been about attracting (or trying to) business and tourists, while largely being blissfully unaware that people actually live in these places. I don't expect Philly's population to boom in the near future, but the decline has stopped and it'll probably grow a wee bit.
