Today in Overblown Listings Copy: the Reading Viaduct = the NY Highline

The listings copy for what seems to be a perfectly nice two-bedroom, bi-level Callowhill loft reads:

Remarks: Walk to Lift Cafe and Prohibition Taproom or walk Philly’s version of the Highline called the Reading Viaduct!

Philly’s version of the Highline? The whole problem is that Philly doesn’t have a version of the Highline. And the Reading Viaduct is far, far, far from anything like the Highline.

To wit…

First we have the New York Highline in a photo taken by Nicholas Noyes:
