Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, and more. This week’s topic: What buildings in Philly are the most iconic?

Philly may be in the middle of a new building boom, but the city itself has been around for a long, long time. That means there are hundreds of noteworthy buildings and works of architecture scattered around this city.

But here’s what we want to know, dear Curbed readers: Which Philly buildings are the most iconic?

Which soaring tower always makes you stop and stare? Is there a building that has always stood out to you for this reason or that? Or perhaps there’s a historic home that just screams “Philly.”

Tell us which buildings are architectural icons in Philly in the comments below, and feel free to share photos if you have ‘em. We’ll compile the best of the best in a forthcoming article!
