New Philly skyline

The skyscraper that some say sparked the Curse of Billy Penn (One Liberty Place rose higher than the hat of William Penn on the top of City Hall and no pro sports teams from the city have won a championship since) has itself been dwarfed. The Comcast Center (aka the "Memory Stick"), designed by Robert A.M. Stern's firm, is almost 1,000 feet tall, and ends OLP's two-decade reign as the tallest in Philadelphia.
