Long line

We stood in line for 15 mins for one picture. Very small, pretty view from up the stairs and along with a water fountain.

Nice spot for a few pictures once you're done running up the stairs that are nearby! There may be a line but that just means someone will be able to take your picture with your arms raised and yelling "Yo Adrian, we did it!"

The statue is very nice, but it's hard to find to many trees it needs more lighting for evening time . No sign of the location

Awesome place to visit with the family or just on a casual date. Building in back is an awesome art museum. If you have time it's well worth it!

Did you know Philly had a real life boxer of legend? Not just Rocky Balboa! Smokin' Joe Frazier finally got a statue as well so see the Rocky statue but also go see Smokin' joe!

Yes, it's cheesy but I still made my family go take a picture. It's iconic! I wasn't the only one. Be aware that if someone wants to help you take pictures, they will ask you for money after. Don't be surprised. Decent area-lots of tourists around

Horrifying that a world class art institution should have this carbuncle on it's face. It should be in front of Joe Frasier's gym.

Whether you are a fan or not it is definitely a must see for this icon put Philadelphia back on the map. Many people unfortunately take history for granted and this movie made Philly a tourist destination again. The statue is to the bottom right of the Philadelphia art museum where the iconic running of the steps took place. Worth... More

This is a fun statue and a good photo opportunity. Stop by even if you are not going to the museum. You can also run up the made famous steps.
