Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Okay, last photos from Philadelphia I think. This the Washington monument is in front of the Philadelphia Museum and we are looking down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway towards downtown Philadelphia.

And this is a close up shot of the detail on the monument. That's Benjamin Franklin on the right. Now I have to find some NYC photos!

Nice perspectve towards City Hall, too bad they use part of the parkway for a parking lot as it spoils the view a bit. The relief sculpture on the base of the statue is wonderful. I may have an opportunity to visit there the first week of March. Thanks for providing the incentive!

I like these. Our national history cast in bronze (or whatever it is).
