Philadelphians took to the streets last night to celebrate their first Super Bowl win after the Eagles defeated the Patriots, 41-33. Thousands of fans piled into the streets across the city, from Center City to Northeast Philly, all the way down to South Philly. It a celebration that fans have been waiting decades to have.

Some of the crowd did get rowdy, and a car was overturned in Center City. People were also climbing up the Ritz Carlton awning and jumping off. The awning ended up collapsing. Six light poles were taken down around City Hall, and it was reported that one person was seriously injured during the incident. Police greased up poles around the city to try and prevent people from climbing them (it did not). Mayor Jim Kenney said this is the day the city has “dreamed of.” Many fans talked about how long their love for the Eagles was passed down through generations. “This is Philly at its best,” said Sam Murphy, 40, who made the trip from Boston to Philadelphia, according to CBS Philly. “This team is what Philly is all about.”
