This is Philadelphia City Hall; construction begun in 1871.
Wikipedia tells us that “[at] 167 m (548 ft), including the statue, it is the world’s second-tallest masonry building” and that it was the tallest building in Pennsylvania until 1932.
The statue on the top is of city founder William Penn; Wiki says that the statue is 11.3-m (37 ft) tall and is “the tallest atop any building in the world.”
