In the forefront, the Philadelphia Museum of Art rises majestically at the end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Constructed of Minnesota Dolomite and completed in 1928, the museum covers 10 acres and houses more than 200,000 works spanning 2,000 years. In the back of the photo, the Comcast Center towers as the tallest building between New York and Chicago.
