These are phenomenal, thanks for sharing! What kind of camera were these taken with? Many of them don’t look like anything my iPhone could capture!

Nice pictures! There's a lot of places I'm familiar with in those pictures, especially Wilmington. It looks like you had some nice nights out given the circumstances! I wish I could've gotten up to Philly once or twice this past summer!

This tour made me miss my old home dearly. Thanks for these. I used to live in West Philly for two years. These make me so nostalgic!

S-tier architectural showcase. The pedestrian scale and quality of these areas looks top-notch. Well done.
