30th Street Station
Built between 1929 and 1933, this incredible eight-story structure designed by Alfred Shaw was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Its massive halls, Art Deco interior and 71-foot-tall Corinthian columns have made it an iconic piece or architecture in the City of Brotherly Love. Unlike most North American terminals, trains arrive at 30th Street Station from all directions: north, south, east and west.
Visitors can surely catch a train from this Philadelphia travel hub, but recent additions of public art, like a giant relief titled “The Spirit of Transportation” or a sculpture of an angel raising a dead soldier to the sky crafted by Walker Hancock, makes this terminal worthy of a visit even if you don’t have a train ticket in hand.
