Philadelphian plumes of city malodor.

Philadelphian plumes of city malodor.
A passerby saw me snapping pics of the steam & told me one night he'd seen what had looked like a hazing ritual take place hereupon, with young men in pink bunnysuits on stepladders, their faces in the steam, bearing disposable plates of what appeared to be bunless cheesesteak, which they ate with their fingers.

He asked if I'd had anything to do with what he'd seen and I said no way.

In downtown Philadelphia, at the southwest corner of North 16th Street and Cherry Street. There's a City of Philadelphia building back there, at 1818 Arch Street. Philadelphia's district heating system is owned by Veolia Energy (formerly known as Trigen Energy), a division of Veolia Environnement.
