The architecture of this famous building is really good. One of the top spot around Philadelphia. It's surrounded by shops and cool fountain.

Philadelphia's City Hall is a fantastic architectural specimen that absolutely deserves a visit. The attention to detail, as well the design of the building make it a great location to stop for a coffee and take in the view.

Represented clients in City Hall, back in the day! Beautiful structure, a work of art and craftsmanship! BTW, didn't necessarily "go visit"! We Philadelphians are blessed with this beauty, although like locals everywhere perhaps we don't visit! Maybe just me ;)

In the heart of Philadelphia, City Hall stands out. One of the largest municipal buildings in the world, it is an impressive place to visit. Take the time to go to the top for the best 360° views of the city.

Beautiful and imposing early 20th century building designated a National Historic Landmark. It is impressive both from the outside and inside (at the building courtyard), day or night. It is also interesting to have a statue (William Penn’s) at the very top of the building.

Working municipal building and the largest in the world. I recommend taking the tour where you'll learn interesting tidbits like it's always had elevators, but they were originally steam powered. The building is stunning even if it is decaying a bit.
