Philadelphia City Hall is an architectural delight for the art lovers. A must visit for all tourists as you will be awestruck by the design of the buildings. It is the finest example of Second Empire style. Uniqueness is the William Penn Statue which adds a historical importance to it. The monument is full of history. Fourteen years ago, it used to be the tallest building in the world. The other statues in the hall are carved in bronze, clay, plaster, and marble. The building has the best combination of architecture as well as incredible engineering. It is the most ornamented building of America. Philadelphia City Hall is a brilliant piece of work to walk around and admire the monument.

  • Love Philadelphia! Excited during a day while exploring. Huge (more than I expected, sorry!) and Touched American history and a hotdog on the street was stairway to heaven. Wanna come back here again, absolutely.

  • This is a great building. I been there lot's of times. The Mayor's office is in the building, as well as the council office. I loved the courtyard that's situated in the middle of the building. When holidays come around, I loved there declarations that they put up in the courtyard, It's very beautiful.

  • It was a super cool place to visit! Lots to do around there in the small squares, especially during holiday season. We took the tower tour which is definitely worth it!

  • Philadelphia City Hall attracts the crowd to itself, which makes it my favorite place especially during the dark nights. The famous Christmas Village including the crafts and special foods takes place with ice rink near the Christmas. During the summer, the rows of automatic water fountains exist, which people usually like to play in! ALSO! Try to find the view from city hall to museum of the art!

  • I remember my Mom and I visiting Philadelphia in December of 1990. I was born in Philly but never really went downtown. And never saw Philadelphia City Hall. We got off the bus and we're walking around for about an hour now. And there it was Philadelphia City Hall !!!! And to my surprise I saw a yellow light. At first did not know what it was. And than a few seconds later realized it was a bid giant clock. And I felt like I went back 200 years !!!! And never quite saw that kind of building built quite like City Hall. It was perfect !!!! I was with my Mom ,snow on the ground, night time about 7:00 p.m. I was in two different worlds at the same time !!!! One just being downtown in a big city and again that City Hall with the big giant yellow clock that took me back 200 years. And on top of that my Mom and I ate Chinese food at a restaurant for supper !!!! And at the time you could not get any Chinese food up in Potter County - North Central Pennsylvania. But my Mom and I did way back in 1990. Or should I say way, way back in 1790. What a night that was !!!!
