The "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" Atlas

30th Street Station

As Seen In: Opening credits
Location: 2955 Market St.

Used during the show's opening credits from seasons two through six, 30th Street Station pops up during a quick pan. Serving as a sort of divider between West Philly and Center City, 30th Street Station is the city's main railroad station, and one of the key stops on Amtrak's Northeast and Keystone Corridors.

The building was designed by Chicago-based architectural firm Graham, Anderson, Probst, and White. It's home to the Pennsylvania Railroad World War II Memorial. Sculpted by Walker Hancock, the memorial honors all of the Pennsylvania Railroad employees who died during the war.

In October 2005, the 28-story office tower Cira Centre opened; it's connected to 30th Street Station by a walkway at the mezzanine level. Rocky's son works in this building in Rocky Balboa. 30th Street Station has appeared in Trading PlacesWitness, and the video game Heavy Rain. The building was added to the U.S. Register of Historic Places in 1978.
