Still Growing

It's just a tiny increase, but the Census estimates that Philly's population has increased by THREE THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED since last year.

That's obviously not a lot - and population growth isn't intrinsically good or bad - but it's 10 straight years of growth (if small) for a city which had decades of massive population declines. So that it's not shrinking anymore is a big deal.
