Comcast Center

Standing at a robust 975 feet tall, the newly opened Comcast Center is the tallest building in Philadelphia. And with its ambitious incorporation of eco-friendly technologies, the Center is also the tallest “green” building in the country.

The building features a public plaza with a gorgeous fountain display, a dramatic eight-story “Winter Garden” and an energy-saving “glass curtain” that wraps around the Comcast Center, allowing for a 360° view of Philadelphia’s urban landscape.

I'd like to think these meat filled pastries are universal. Virtually every region in the world has a version of it. They vary in size and in fillings and obviously called different names but still is essentially the same 'ol thing. Called empanada in Spanish influenced countries and birdie in Scotland. Make them a bit bigger and they are called pasties in Cornwall
