    Philly From the Top

     

    Ever wonder what Philly looks like from 57 floors up? Well now's your chance! Since it's inception in November 2015, the One Liberty Observation Deck, located in the city's beloved Liberty Place building, has become a city top spot (literally!). Marvel over the birds-eye views of the city's famed skyline, and explore some of the interactive exhibits. The observation deck is closed, so it's open all year long, rain or shine. It's also still technically outdoors. We think.
