Bridge hadn't been tagged yet, nor what used to be the ferry slip, so I'm thinking your tag was cool. The most current version of the Philly TOR map can be found here.

It was PC-Rider's post about the Chester-Bridgeport Ferry that got me interested in this spot. Here are some pictures from when it still was a ferry.

I figured that. I've been lurking there from time to time too. I was pleasantly surprised by the interest and conversation generated when I dropped that tag at the end of Ferry Road. Cool bit of history.

It is right near the intersection of 33rd and Dauphin Streets in Philadelphia.
Not the greatest of neighborhoods, not terrible, but not great either.
