This is Philadelphia landmark, Philadelphia City is very small, two hundred years ago the planned grid road is still the most important texture of the city today. Thus, the City Hall, located in the center of the city, can be easily seen from all angles. At first, Philadelphia stipulated that the height of the building should not be higher than that of the bronze statue. Later, due to the need of municipal development, it had to deceive itself that the old Penn "invisible" on the back of the bronze statue could be built high-rise buildings, so today the east side of the building still maintains its primitive style, while the west side has a series of skyscrapers. When it was built in 1901, the 167m high city hall was the tallest building in the world at that time. Today, this huge city hall is still one of the tallest and largest masonry structures in the world. I went to its feet and found that it was much bigger than the photo. I couldn't see the bronze statue on the top. Closer to it, the stone walls of the building are old and somewhat dark, carved with complex patterns and figures. It is still the office space of the Philadelphia government, open to the outside world, and free guides from Monday to Friday can visit the conference room and introduce the political system of the United States. Through the city hall, it's an open square. The fountain pool became a playground for children.
A magnificent building is a landmark in Philadelphia. Philadelphia City Hall is located at the intersection of Broad St and Market St, the geometric center of Philadelphia City. It has been a public square since Philadelphia was founded in 1682 until the city hall was established in 1871. The city hall, 167 meters high, was the world's tallest building when it was built in 1901, and remains the world's tallest city hall building until 1908. A bronze statue of William Penn, the founder of Philadelphia, stands on the roof of the Philadelphia City Hall of Government. At first, Philadelphia stipulated that the height of the building should not be higher than that of the bronze statue. Later, due to the need of municipal development, it had to deceive itself that the old Penn "invisible" on the back of the bronze statue could be built high-rise buildings, so today the east side of the building still maintains its primitive style, while the west side has a series of skyscrapers. If you think of the plan of visiting the whole Philadelphia on the top floor of the building, you must call in advance to make an appointment. We were forced to cancel the plan of going to the top of the tower because there were more tourists when we went. It is a pity that we had to make an appointment one day in advance to cancel the plan of going to the top of the tower. In addition, the municipal building also has a guided tour, and it is also recommended to make an appointment in advance. Unfortunately, the day we went, the top of the tower was closed because of bad weather. We could only see the scenery downstairs and enjoy the magnificent building and beautiful relief from far to near.
What impressed me most when I came to Philadelphia was the City Hall. This Latin-style building stands tall on JFK Avenue and enters the gate. The atrium is very wide. There are often some artists singing and dancing here. Can you imagine that this building was once the tallest building in the world? Of course, that goes back to the beginning of the last century.
It's the most spectacular city hall I've ever seen. City Hall is my favorite place to go for a walk and also a place to calm my mind.
Along Franklin Park Avenue, from the direction of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and finally to the City Hall, it is a very grand and magnificent government agency. It was Sunday and nobody should be at work. In the building, there were several black people playing musical instruments and echoing in the building. It was very touching. I thanked them for their money. Several blacks were begging. This is the center of the city, so there are a lot of blacks doing nothing. This is a feature of the decline of the old industrial city. But there is a feeling that, there is really no city management to drive these people out, and no one cares to enter or leave the city hall at will. It's quite free.
It's close to home. It's ten minutes'walk. After dinner, I was bored and went out to sneak here. Philadelphia City Hall is the most expensive, tallest and largest city hall in the United States. It took 30 years to build it. It is also the landmark building of Philadelphia, located in the center of Philadelphia, built in 1901. The building is square, 167 meters high, and has more than 700 rooms. It is like a medieval castle. It has a large scale, complicated decoration and is tall and magnificent. The biggest difference with the domestic municipal government is that there is no police, visitors and citizens are free to enter and leave, very pro-people ah!
Philadelphia's political hall is also magnificent. Unlike the city halls in China, the city halls here are not serious, although they are spectacular. Several black people are playing beautiful music and looking forward to your reward. The response was very good. It was beautiful. It gave the artist some change. There were also several beggars hanging around the city hall and outside. Ha-ha, I couldn't help but give them a few dollars.
This is probably the most magnificent city hall in the world. The building is very tall. It used to be the tallest building in the world. There are also tall bronze statues on the roof. The sculpture on the ground floor is very beautiful. Free tours are available on weekdays and free guides are provided by the municipal government.
