Best of Philly 2009: Cheap Thing to do in the City
Tour City Hall
Broad Street and JFK Boulevard
Though most of the time we’re frustrated with the traffic crawling around it, the truth is that 1901-built City Hall is one impressive building: regal and palatial on its exterior, the world’s largest masonry building, and the largest municipal building in the country. Ninety-minute $10 tours are offered once a day at 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, starting in room 121. Don’t miss the tight ride in the four-person elevator to the top of the tower, for an eagle’s-eye view of the city that few Philadelphians ever experience.
