A glimpse of the "city of brotherly love"

Looking from Camden, New Jersey across the Delaware River toward's Philadelphia's skyline


Approaching the bridge to cross the Delaware River to Philadelphia

It's an impressive structure!

In the upper left of this photo is the statue of William Penn atop Philadelphia's City Hall.


In the not-too-distant past, the statue of William Penn was one of the first things I'd notice when approaching the city. At that time, no buildings in "Philly" were to be higher than the statue. It's now dwarfed by tall buildings.

  3. What a commanding view of Philadelphia from across the river. I remember, in the 1940's riding in the family car from north Jersey to Baltimore. There were no freeways and few tall buildings along the way. My memorable views of the river were from the Delaware Water Gap, way before it became a National Monument..

  11. These are very beautiful photos! So large bridges always fascinate me very much - especially the other view of the area that you have then!

  13. I have been on that bridge. Slightly terrifying. I am not a fan of driving over bridges! Have a great week.

  18. While newer tall buildings can be beautiful on the skyline, it is sad that they drown out the smaller older ones.
