what's that new tower going up downtown? It looks like it's already taller than the next tallest (One Liberty Place?) I don't think they had even started on that the last time I was in Phila, which was only last summer!

I'll have to check out the Philadelpahia threads.

I haven't been to Philadelphia in years (like almost 20), and I need to give her a second chance. The last time I got to go as a teenager, there was a sanitation worker strike and it definitely jaded my opinion. I need to plan a trip there (especially since I have relatives only 35 miles away.)

Thanks for posting the pics, they're great! :thumbsup:

That is indeed the Comcast tower, which you can see is rising above the other talls in Philly; when it's done it'll be just shy of 1000 feet.

Also, to Suburban George 3, if you go back to Philly you won't recognize it compared with 20 years ago- like many big cities in this country, it's greatly improved. Sure, there are still many issues that need to be worked out, but it's a great place already. Top notch history, restaurants, culture- everything a big city should deliver on.
