The vitality of the city and rich set of offerings including cultural amenities, parks, restaurants, stores and easy access by transit have helped attract people just starting out after college, families, and empty nesters to Center City. The population spike in the 25-34 year old cohort shows the particular attraction of Center City to young singles, couples, and new families.
