VIDEO: We say goodbye to the Phillie Phanatic

Posted 3 years, 7 months ago.


On August 30th, the NCC will say goodbye to our favorite summer visitor, the statue of the Phillie Phanatic which has graced our lobby all summer. All summer, the Phillies have placed 20 Phanatic statues at locations all across the city.

The statue, titled “Philantic” and painted by Lilliana DiDovic and Ronnie Norpel, is now currently up for auction with all procedes benefitting Phillies charities.

If you didn’t get a chance to visit all of the statues, check out this time-lapse video where one brave Philadelphian visits all 20 in six minutes. Around 1:50, look out for the NCC.
