A Random Act of Culture & MY FAVORITE Dept. Store

No...not Macy's (although they are a close second place).  This is the "former" John Wanamaker's flag ship store in Center City Phila.  Wanamaker knew beauty and elegance could combine with commercial functions and his store is marble and brass and glass and class. 

When you hear someone  from Philadelphia say "meet me at the Eagle" (we say really say IGGLE)  we mean the EAGLE in this video - look for him, he's famous and should have his own website.  Meanwhile just enjoy the music of the largest pipe organ in the world and the amazing chorus of VOLUNTEERS who showed up and sang their hearts out.
