What to Do in Philly…
The 72-step stone staircase outside the entrance to the Philadelphia Museum of Art is known informally as the “Rocky Steps.” They became famous in the 1976 Oscar-winning film Rocky, when the movie’s hero Rocky Balboa sprinted to the top of the steps and raised his arms in triumph. This is the climax of one of the greatest training montages in film history, backed by Bill Conti’s award winning masterpiece “Gonna Fly Now.” Every day, visitors run up the Rocky Steps and, upon reaching the top, jump around with their hands in the air. Hardcore Rocky fans can even trace the route Rocky took during his famous run through the city to reenact other memorable moments from the film. At the bottom and to the right of the steps is the statue (used in Rocky III) of Stallone’s iconic character.
Fairmount Park is 4,100-acre park within the 9,200-acre municipal park system of 63 parks called Fairmount Parks. The park grew out of the Lemon Hill estate that was previously owned by Robert Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. A city council’s ordinance dedicated it to the public in 1855 and the city worked to create a naturally landscaped park that would also protect the Schuylkill water supply. Today the Centennial Arboretum, the Horticulture Center, Fairmount Water Works, Memorial Hall, the Please Touch Museum, the Belmont Plateau, Japanese House and Garden, Bartram’s Garden, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Boathouse Row, and Azalea Garden are all part of the Fairmount Parks system. Fairmount Park is also home to the Philadelphia Zoo, the first zoo in the United States. There are also several large statues throughout the park, including the Florentine Lions, put in place by the Fairmount Park Art Association.
The Franklin Institute is one of the oldest centers of science education in the United States. It is now a science museum, named after Benjamin Franklin, that houses the Benjamin Franklin National Memorial. The memorial is a 20-foot high marble statue of Franklin sitting in a chair. In 1884 the Institute hosted the first International Electrical Exhibition. Over the years, many scientists demonstrated groundbreaking technology at the Institute. In 1893 Nikola Tesla demonstrated the idea of wireless telegraphy and in 1934 Philo Taylor Farnsworth demonstrated the first all-electric television. The museum’s permanent exhibits include Electricity, Changing Earth, The Franklin Airshow, The Giant Heart, The Joel N. Bloom Observatory, The Sports Challenge, The Train Factory, Sir Isaac’s Loft, Space Command, and the Amazing Machine.
Independence Hall is a paramount site for American history buffs. It was also home to the famous Liberty Bell, which today is on display across the street at Liberty Bell Center. The building’s bell tower currently holds the Centennial Bell, which was built for the tower in 1876. The building, which dates back to the 1730s, receives over 600,000 visitors every year. Independence Hall was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979.
Philadelphia’s City Hall is a 9-story, 548-foot tall house for the government of Philadelphia. It was completed in 1901 and from 1901 to 1908 it was the tallest habitable building in the world. Architect John McArthur Jr. designed the Second Empire style building, which took 30 years and $24 million to complete. McArthur also designed Philadelphia’s Tenth Presbyterian Church and the First National Bank Building. At the top of the building is a 37-foot bronze statue of Philadelphia founder William Penn. The statue, which was sculpted by Alexander Milne Calder, is the largest statue on top of any building in the world. The City Hall has almost 700 rooms, making it the largest city hall in the United States. In 1976 the building became a National Historic Landmark.
Boathouse Row is a row of 15 boathouses on the east bank of the Schuylkill River. The houses were built in the mid to late 1800s in a Late Victorian style. Each boathouse houses a rowing club and its boats (shells). Boathouse Row is the center of the rowing community in the United States. Every year, Boathouse Row hosts major rowing races or “regattas,” such as: the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, Stotesbury Cup Regatta, the Navy Day Regatta, the Independence Day Regatta, and the Head of the Schuylkill. In 1979 Ray Grenald installed lights on each of the houses to make them more noticeable and appreciated. This gave them a Christmas-like appearance at night and kept them from possibly being torn down. In 1987 Boathouse Row became a National Historic Landmark.
