    Harrisburg and the Sesquehanna River at night

    The Pennsylvania State Capitol’s prominent 94-foot dome sits quietly under the gilded brass statue of Commonwealth. The Fulton Bank sign on the right paints over the silky river with an interesting red.

    I took this shot from a small island called City Island, between Harrisburg and Wormleysburg. This small mile-long landmass, used for sports and recreational activities, provides one of the best views of the Pennsylvania State Captiol from the Sesquehanna River.

    Capitol of Pennsylvania and the closest airport to Bucknell University, where I worked for six years. Every time I visit this city I am pleasantly surprised. There's a great downtown with some good restaurants and fun events. Not a bad place to swing through if you're nearby.

Description

Harrisburg is the capital of Pennsylvania and a crucial part of the state's early success. As an important steel and railroad center in the late 19th century, the city helped put Pennsylvania on the map. Today it is a large metropolitan area with two performance centers and a lively nightlife scene. It is also home of the Pennsylvania Farm Show, the largest agricultural exhibit in the country.
