It's weird that the housing around the stadium looks so dense and well planned but the stadium itself is surrounded by a sea of surface parking.You'd think they'd at least build a garage for it or something.

I love this skyline due to the huge towers that dominate it. Very dramatic views driving in. It's definitely a bit lacking in the 500'|150m+ department due to the old Gentlemen's Agreement, but has a ton of buildup below that mark. More huge towers on the way. The biggest cities in the Northeast are booming!

While not aesthetically pleasing, the ample surface parking did help Philadelphia win the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The Convention will be held at the Wells Fargo Center (lower left in photo) which will provide the Dems with not only lots of parking but a large open area that will facilitate the establishment of spacious security zone. Neither Nationwide Arena in Columbus nor the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (the other two finalists) could match what Wells Fargo Arena could offer in parking and security.
