Was about 6 feet tall, the leaf shape is very distinct.

It is a Tulip tree. The leaf shape can be heavily lobed (as in that pic) or shallowly lobed.

By the way, I looked at your other thread about same, and the tree in this photo is not a Tulip tree, but the seedling in the same post is a Tulip tree.

I think that tree is a Sycamore maple. Look at the bark, especially (and the leaves).

Later in the thread you do post a Tulip tree:

See how the bark (and leaves) are very different.

@Leftwood has some good eyes Thumbs up
Since the tree on this thread is the Tulip and your post refers to the not-Tulip on a different thread, can you please make a similar post on the other thread so folks can know which photo is the Sycamore and which is the Tulip? Thank You!

I already did a while ago when I realized the mistake. The other tree is a London Plane which is a hybrid.

Really? Where?
I can't find anywhere on that thread where London Plane is mentioned.
