Yeah, there are plenty of ways
of getting high in Philadelphia.
Higher than a kite, in fact.
Let me share 3 ways...
I should say - legal ways.

What is it about cities
bragging on their tallest buildings?
In 1901 Philadelphia,
City Hall was the
tallest building in the world.
Those were some big bragging rights -
getting pretty high too.

It held the title of
Tallest Building in Philadelphia until
One Liberty Place
controversially surpassed it in the 1980s.
|The Observation Deck at One Liberty Place|
That was controversial
because there had been a
not to build higher than
William Penn on top of City Hall.

One Liberty Place is the
tallest building in Philadelphia,
15th tallest in the United States,
98th tallest in the world.

Today, William Penn has
8 neighboring skyscrapers
looking down on him.
I guess if you are that high
having taller neighbors
won't bother you too much anyway.
