The Scene: Philly Skyline from 19th & JFK

In a nod to Joe.My.God.'s Morning Views, this is the first of (I hope) many scenes of Philly and other places I encounter in my travels.

At a cocktail party on Saturday night, I had the luck to capture this beautiful view of the Philly skyline at night from 29 floors above the corner of 19th & JFK. I'm looking east here, as Philly natives will know, and the brightly-lit spire in the distance is the top of City Hall, with Billy Penn on top. The Aramark tower is to the left and slightly farther away. The legendary PSFS building, the first skyscraper built in the International style, is visible immediately to the right of the City Hall spire.
