Benjamin Franklin Parkway

Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the mile long roadway of flags, diagonally slices through center-city Philadelphia. The majority of other city streets were laid out in a square grid, a Franklin design. The parkway, running from city hall and ending at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, is the center of city culture. The avenue was designed in the early 1900s by Frenchman Jacques Gréber, and today, the boulevard displays flags from every country of the world.
