Our concern is not how to worship in the catacombs but how to remain human in the skyscrapers. ~Abraham Joshua Heschel
What a trip! What an experience! All the way up to the roof of the Comcast Center, the tallest “green” building in America. Awesome.
I was invited months ago to come for a tour of the roof when the weather got warm. It’s a thrill less than a hundred people have experienced, (at least that’s what we were told.)
At the end we saw the little Billy Penn statue, (famous for allegedly breaking the curse on all Philly sports teams).
Come with me and interns Will O’Donnell and Amanda Schwab to the highest heights in Philadelphia. Our tour guides are Natalie Kidd and Jim Birch of Liberty Property Trust, head of security and safety at the Comcast Center.
Our knees were weak and rubbery when we came down to earth. The adventure took our breath away. How wonderful to stand in awe on the roof of an engineering and architectural landmark.
