The "City of Brotherly Love" definitely deserves no less than 8.5/10 from me. Plus, some new redevelopments may jack it that half point up to 9/10. That would be truly awe-inspiring. Good-luck Philadelphia!

Very massive, looks like a mini-New York, and very gothic-styled too as well. 8/10.

Philly is an 8 for me. Definitely room for improvement especially east of Broad Street. Couple angles are absolutely amazing manhattanish , others angles you would hardly know there was a skyline in Philly. The big buildings seem to be too clustered, eliminating each other in many cases. You can't see Liberty 1 or Liberty 2 from the art museum, thats ridiculous.

Should be interesting to see how Philly's skyline evolves in the future. I would like to see more skyscrapers and less suburban office parks, lets get it together Philly.

Liberty One Place is bloody gorgeous. Mmm' mmmmm

The whole skyline rocks - plenty of height, variety and density. Great to see you guys are throwing up another supertall as well.

Lovely stuff. 9/10
