The Streets of Philly

After one from Trois-Rivières and one from Ottawa, here's a streetscape of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The photo was taken at the junction of Broad Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, right in front of the Philadelphia City Hall, whose corner you can see on the left hand side. The towers in the background include Liberty Place which was heavily influenced by the Chrysler Building in New York City.

Philadelphia, nicknamed The City of Brotherly Love and Philly, is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth-largest in the United States (about 1.5 million inhabitants). The city was founded in 1682 by William Penn.

We visited the city one day after the end of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, which saw Hillary Clinton elected as the party's nominee for president. You can still see some DNC flags attached to the lampposts.
