Philadelphia Skyline

Philadelphia Skyline

Taken from the 33rd floor of the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, this photo shows off the sleek and modern buildings that dominate Philadelphia’s skyline. Until 1987, a gentlemen’s agreement limited building construction to the height of City Hall. Today, lights emanate from dozens of buildings, making the nation’s fifth largest city sparkle.
