Today was a glorious autumn day in Philly and I had to snag a few photos from my new building to share on here. I wish I had snagged pictures this morning with the mist on the Delaware River and a golden haze over NJ. Another time I promise I will. This is the view looking dead east. The river you see is the Delaware River, the dividing line between NJ and Philadelphia. The blue bridge is the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, which my train goes over every day. The white building to the right of the photo is City Hall, and the statue on the top is none other than our beloved Billy Penn, known to the rest of the nation as William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. I've written before about the Philly skyline. You can refresh here.
Here is a zoomed in view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.
This is the view north of my building. I am now right across the street from the Comcast building, which is now the tallest building in Philly. I love how its glass reflects Liberty One and Liberty Two.
This is the view facing north of the ground. The green dome is the peak of the Arch Street Presbyterian Church.
This is the view west of the city. The river you see snaking along is called the Schuylkill River (pronounced SKOO-kuhl). If you look very closely you'll spot the Art Museum, forever immortalized by Sylvester Stallone in Rocky.
