Conferences Russo's Ramblings



One of my hobbies is architecture – I’m a sucker for an awesome building, and the PA Convention Center is one. The entry building you see above is the old railroad train shed (the oldest surviving single-span arched train shed in the world). Upon entering and going upstairs, you are greeted by the grand hall also shown above. The “new” section with all the convention halls and rooms is straight back, in the next block.

This is an awesome re-use and combination of Philly history with current needs. Oh, so sweet!
