Philadweller, I used a lot of your photos because they were so good! I linked to your original postings under every picture of yours that I used. Thank you for taking such great photos.

Ciracentered, are the pictures you posted mostly by Philadweller? If so, this thread should probably be moved over to Urban Showcase for original photography!

"...Well, that's a nice surprise for me...I always thought that Boston was the second largest city in the USA east coast!"

Pegasus.

Boston is the 22 largest city in the US whereas Philadelphia is the 6th. Also, Baltimore is larger than Boston at #19 which makes Boston the 4th largest on the east coast.

I can't wait til this is finished.


Hello Pittsburgh (not to be confused with Philly as some of my last shots look more Pittsburgh than Philly).

I am still waiting for philadweller to answer my question of which building in the first shot was his house, b/c he didn't stat that originally.

With both Philly and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is one lucky state. Is it the letter P that makes it all so wonderful?

Remember though, this is just city population. Boston is very small as far as land goes. If you count the metro area which is most important Boston is 4th in the Northeast behind New York, Philadelphia, and Washington.

Here are the metro rankings for the northeast:

New York-18.8 million
Philadelphia-5.8 million
Washington-5.3 million
Boston-4.5 million
Baltimore-2.7 million
Pittsburgh-2.4 million

That photo of Logan Circle could be anywhere in Europe. Perhaps Bucharest?

My house was in front of the tubular kimmel center right before the church that is before the kimmel center. 320 Juniper between Pine and Spruce!

TallerBetter Georgian, Federal, Colonial and Greek Revival make up much of older Philadelphia. Philadelphia in general has evidence of nearly every type of architecture on this continent.
Dublin and Philadelphia are known for their abundance of Georgian.

The Logan Circle pic is fantastic!
Now Philly and Pittsburgh are not the same. Have a different skyline. And Pittsburgh is smaller than Philly i think...

Yes Pittsburgh is smaller and in a much different geographic setting.

I'm forever asking this of people, but next time you go back home to Philly, if you happen to be inside any of the historic buildings.... please post pictures. I can't get enough of the historics! Colonial architecture is one of my favourite pastimes... Thanks!

Taller Baller, you got a deal. In the meantime feel free to browse (www.pbase.com/dolf)
my photos gallery. I haven't added to it in a few years as I have lost interest in taking digital photos.
