13th and Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA
Philadelphia
13th Street and Market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is just down the street from the Philadelphia City Hall, visible in this panorama. Market Street is known as the most historic road in America due to the number of important historic sites in its eastern section. Some of the most famous sites include Independence National Historic Park home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. One block away from where this panorama was taken is the Reading Terminal, the former railway station for the Reading Railroad. Originally, Market Street was known as High Street when it was founded by William Penn in about 1681 and 1682. The two widest streets were High (now Market) and Broad Street. The central square, now occupied by the City Hall, was designated as a market. By 1701 the City had over 2,500 inhabitants. Today, Philadelphia is the 5th largest city in the United States, between Houston, Texas as number four and Phoenix, Arizona as number six.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
