When I came across Zen Master Peter Gilks post on NYC skyscrapers, I decided to do one for Philly. Philadelphia is the largest city in Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and sixth most populous city in United States. Adding the steeple to Christ Church made Philly home to the tallest structure in North America during revolution. Then comes our beloved City Hall the tallest habitable building from 1894 to 1908. It was also the first tallest secular building until then the credit went to religious building including the Pyramids of Giza. There was gentleman’s agreement not to build anything taller than the City Hall which was ended by One Liberty Place in 1986. Now Comcast Technology Center stands tall as 9th tallest building in United States. Enjoy the skyscrapers of Philly here –
