No. 11 Philadelphia

12 of 22

What would Ben Franklin have
thought of the Comcast Experience HD wall? At the corner of 17th and Arch, in
the Comcast HQ, the 2,100-square-foot LED screen runs footage of natural and
urban landscapes at five times the quality of normal HD. Granted, most people
come to Philly to marvel at pieces of historic low tech (such as parchment and that broken bell). But to rub elbows with local
techies, pull up a stool at National Mechanics, an Old City restaurant that
features homemade lighting fixtures and beloved microbrews.
