Philly has wider streets like on 38th Street between Lancaster Ave all the way down to Va Medical Center. JFK Blvd is a wider street. Broad and Market Street too. The main thoroughfares are typically wider.

I prefer narrower streets from a pedestrian standpoint.
I just feel like things can get claustrophobic, especially depending on how close to the street the building lies.
