Previously I had posted a wider view of this iconic corner in Philadelphia...but it was cluttered with vehicular traffic.
---
The pillared building is the 30th Street Station, behind which stands the Cira Center Building.
----
The Eagle carving is one of many animal sculptures that grace the Market Street Bridge (that spans the Schuylkill River).

Gorgeous cityscape, Michelle, and I love the juxtaposition of the old and new...so very striking! I once posted a shot with the same title (see last page in my gallery)...of course Lafayette IN does not have the grandeur of Philly!
