Many of the iconic points for observing the Philadelphia skyline are located in the city, though several are situated in New Jersey across the Delaware River and on the multiple bridges that connect New Jersey and Pennsylvania. One of these is the Commodore Barry Bridge, which was completed in 1974. Today, Philadelphia YIMBY observes the rising Philadelphia skyline from the bridge.

In front of Mellon Bank Center and One Liberty Place, the recently topped out 599-foot The Laurel Rittenhouse stands prominently with cladding nearing the top and the tower crane rising around 700 feet high.
