Day 71: Wanamaker's (Macy's)
I had a long layover in Philadelphia, so I took the train in to the city and walked about. I went to a museum and also did a bit of shopping. This is the Christmas tree in the Grand Court at Macy's (the original Wanamaker's, Philadelphia's oldest department store). They even played the grand organ for a bit, which I discovered is the largest operational pipe organ in the world. I'd always wanted to visit Wanamaker's since I had heard it mentioned in a song in Guys and Dolls.
