Greening the City of Philadelphia Name: Institution: Course: Date: Greening the City of Philadelphia Being one of the most populous cities in the United States and the largest in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia experiences all of the main challenges that most major cities are facing today. There is a population influx in most of the areas and the demands on the physical structures that were constructed decades ago is mounting significantly.
