Needs a Market West Alley Shot and South Broad shot - both from City Hall near street level, to highlight commercial high-rise density. BUT, I'm surely not complaining.

Never seen this angle before. The Delaware River and the greenery to the south look stunning -- almost San Fran like.

I pleasantly surprised how green the city looks in many of these pictures. The city has been emphasizing being more green via the street tree program and whatnot. Not to get off on a tangent, but does anyone have any before / after views from like a decade back to compare?

Philly is looking beautiful!

Double digits in threads! Maybe we can get a 1,500 foot tower in this one...

Regarding Summers post on May 18th has anyone commented on the upper left quadrant
on the fourth photo . It looks like a bus flying over Temple or something maybe a lens artifact ?

While we're just posting pictures of the city, here's one of City Hall I took the other day.

I noticed that. Went to the largest scale on image on Flicker. I think it's a large add being towed by a single engine plane, which is up and off to the left a bit.

Philly is looking beautiful!
Not exactly what you're looking for, but Google Maps street view lets you select older views, so you can see specific areas that way.

All of the new threads from the last few weeks have been tagged appropriately. We should also be seeing the June CDR list come out soon, so expect Blumenfeld's proposal on North Broad to be on there, especially considering that he wants it to start by July.
