Philadelphia has arguably one of the best collections (although smaller than some) of post-modern towers in North America, another Historic American city I want to visit!

I have always loved the Philly skyline. I gave it an 8.5/10. I have a question for all you guys from Philly, back when the Red Wings played the Flyers in a few years back (possible the finals), I remember Detroit putting a big wings jersey on the Spirit of Detroit, and Philly putting a big Flyers jersey on one of the buildings. Which building was it and if you have any pictures that would be great.

I love this city. A great blend of old and new. The Liberty Place towers add so much to this city. 8.5/10.

The next-best thing to perfect. 9.5/10

It's easily my second favorite in North America (after NYC).
