towerpower123 Modern skyscrapers versus classic Beaux Arts. This was a hard one because Liberty Place was the first skyscraper to have the stones to break the gentleman's agreement of not building taller than City Hall, allowing the whole skyline to grow taller.  +1

DZH22 There is no wrong answer with this one. It is the appropriate finale for Philadelphia.  +1
DeaconG I really hate to pick between the two, but when push comes to shove, City Hall represented my home town for a century. Plus, the observation deck is not for the faint of heart!  
SpiderBHZ The City Hall.  +1
