  1. Great city with amazing structures and skyscrapers with intricate details. Truly Phily is a nice city to live in. Btw, nice captures!

  2. Philadelphia showcases the old and the new. It features a piece of history like the narrow Quincy street. And it also has towering skycrapers amidst the Delaware River.

  3. Your pictures came out great. Philidelphia is the birth place of Andy Warhol, and not to mention countless historical events for the united states not to mention played a huge role during the industrialization of the United States. Thanks for the post!
