Yep. They dedicated the statue to him, I think because the movie was filmed in the city, and I think he was born here as well (not rocky, but Sylvester Stallone (i cant spell that)).

I thought Sylvester Stallone was born in Italy (i.e. The Italian Stallion) lol.

Anyhow, the pics are nice.

BTW, the first pic blew my mind lol.

Well were both wrong. He was born in New York

Stallone was born in Hell's Kitchen, New York; the son of Jacqueline "Jackie" (nee Labofish), an astrologer, former dancer, and promoter of women's wrestling, and Frank Stallone, Sr., a hairdresser.[2] Stallone's father was an immigrant from Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, and his mother is of part Eastern European Jewish ancestry (her grandmother, Rosa Rabinovich, was from Odessa, Ukraine).[3] In the 1960s, Stallone attended the American College of Switzerland, Leysin and the University of Miami for three years. He came within a few credit hours of graduation, before he decided to drop out and pursue an acting career. After Stallone's request that his acting and life experiences be accepted in exchange for his remaining credits, he was granted a Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) degree by the President of the University of Miami in 1999.[4]

Indeed Sylverster was born in New York. The status is dedicated to him because the movie was shot here. The steps that he is running up and down for training are the steps in front of the art museum and are now named the "rocky steps" in his honor.

That first picture is boathouse rose. Makes Philly look great! Unfortunately, the views are only 25% of the story but that's a different topic.

Nice pics, Alex. Are you sure they're unedited? The quality is amazing! Is that an expensive camera?

Naw, boathouse row is a row of houses on the waterfront that has lights just about every night, year round. Cool sight!
