On street level, Philadelphia is a bustling city with awesome urban sights at every turn.
From above, though, the city’s skyline, lights and movement come into focus, revealing a big-picture perspective on the City of Brotherly Love.
Recently, filmmaker and journalist Cory J. Popp had access to rooftops all over the city, thanks to local real estate company Brandywine Realty Trust, and captured gorgeous footage from multiple bird’s-eye vantage points.
In this video, Popp displays Philadelphia from far above its streets and shows off some amazing sky-high sights.
Looking to snap your own sky-high shots? Here are some of the best places the general public can score great observation deck-like views in Philadelphia.
