Time to see a little bit of Philadelphia, Gregory writes:
City Hall, blocks from the hotel and from the Kimmel Center, Verizon Hall, where we sang. This is still the largest municipal building in the US. Gorgeous. Philly today was summer hot and sunny, completely contrary to normal climate. I had a hard time getting enough building in frame because the sun kept ruining the picture from most angles. Our hotel is *steps* from the first library in the United States. Benjamin Franklin founded a subscription library (because books were not readily available in the colonies and were far too expensive and difficult to find for single owners). This building also served as the Library of Congress until the Capitol moved 1800 and was the largest library in the country until 1850
