The Observatory

Imagine standing atop a ridge in the newfound Colony of Pennsylvania in the 1690s and gazing up at the stars on a clear night. It must have been pretty sick, because Kelpius and his boys built a whole-ass observatory just to get a better look. Supposedly it even harbored a functional telescope. Anyway, since light pollution wrecked all that, this observatory isn't for admiring celestial spheres. It's for cherishing the people, places, and happenings that make me happy to call Philadelphia home.
