A little detail for an assignment from Philadelphia Magazine. This is Philly's City Hall. When I was sketching it, I remembered the first time I ever saw this impressive building.
I was visiting from SF, and I was in a cab that was merging from Broad Street into one of the four lanes that circles City Hall. My cab smashed into a Cadillac Escalade. The Escalade driver, who could pass for Suge Knights twin brother, gets out of his car screaming. I'm stuck in the back of the cab while these guys started going toe to toe. It was the only time I ever split from a cab without paying the fare.
