Good stuff. I wonder if this is the LEGO Liberty Bell model that traveled the country. In 1992, they had a LEGO display that went around the country, and part of it was a model of the Liberty Bell. I remember going when was a kid. They also had models of the Washington Monument, White House, US Capitol, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Supreme Court, and even Mark Twain's house.

Great to see Philly getting a lotta love recently, especially since Saquon is giving them grief right now.

Not sure why, but suddenly I'm feeling really hungry.

Thanks for the tour.

Yeah it's nice to see someone capture the "beauty" side of Philly's character and not just the "grit" that tends to come out in films shot here and a lot of the city's urban photography.

Great pics, Summer! You made it on to my block, Castle Ave! In fact, I think you got some of my car in that photo across the street.

Nice pictures! My favorite is the parade. But why only one of that? By the way, I was in the area behind the Italian flag in your picture.

Where is that Lego-looking building?

Thank you! I'm unsure - it could be? I've been through this terminal 4 times in the past 2 years and this is the first time I've noticed it though. Took that pic in October.

Thank you! Surprisingly, they somehow ended up pulling out the win. I was at the game on Sunday. I wanted the Eagles to draft Saquon badly - not looking forward to the Eagles having to face him twice per year.

Thank you! Had to squeeze it in there. There's some other suburban and beach town appearances too, but mostly Philly

Thank you! That's hilarious - had no idea. It's a great block! My favorite in Passyunk area. That and 13th Street.

Thanks! I had a few other pics of the parade but they didn't turn out great.

What building are you referring to?

Excellent! You showed off Philly in a great light. And you really went all over - Spruce Hill, South Philly, Wissahickon and West Fairmount Parks, East Falls, Chestnut Hill, and even outside of the city, I spotted Ardmore, Doylestown, and the Shore. Very good stuff! (except the KoP Fake Town Center pic - eff that place)

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed.

I don't mind KOP Towne Center - it's different and interesting, and that's alright with me. Wish more newer suburban towns would urbanize in this fashion; it would be good for the region! Malvern and Cherry Hill immediately spring to mind.
