Chestnut: Macy's
Chestnut Street in Philadelphia has a run of architecture that is really stunning. Macy’s just moved to Market street at 13th inheriting a building with classical detailing. Here’s where the building comes through on the next street – Chestnut. This photo was taken this winter when the summer sun lit up the loggia wall and curved gracefully around the columns. The street was loud and active, but just above head-level this very quiet, slow moving and massive show was going on.
