Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Extending northwest from City Hall, the Benjamin Franklin Parkway is lined with glorious fountains and a vast array of museums and libraries, all ending at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the famous 'Rocky' steps.

This nighttime view from the Benjamin Franklin Parkway of Philadelphia's City Hall shows the magnificence of an outstanding example of French Second Empire architecture.

Completed in 1901, this landmark in the center of the city is the largest occupied masonry structure in the world and the largest municipal building in the nation
