Neighborhood is a bit sketchy.
Might want to think twice about a night time grab.

I'm having no luck reading that street sign, and guessing isn't getting me anywhere.

Kinda thought this might be difficult to find.

If you were HUNTING in Philly for the DON you might travel northbound on 11th.

You might want to make a stop at 2511.

What is it? Pretty cool tag. Local artist? Community art project? Gang club house?

Wish I knew what it was Doc. Probably a community art project.

Found it one day riding in the city on my bicycle and thought it would be a good tag.

Happy New Year from Heather & I!


There's no gate to keep you out, but if it's after hours this sign at the entetance will do for the grab.

Here's closer look at the sign at the parking area.

No idea. Very odd. For as nicely kept, and for as clean of tags as the walls are, the lot is a shithole. I wouldn't have been surprised to feel a needle sliding into my foot while getting this shot. There's another similar wall up the street.

You are very brave. I once was mugged on my bicycle in Philly in a better neighborhood then that. Group of kids having fun. One had a baseball bat. Luckily, I caught the blow on the forearm, and was able to keep riding away. Nice hematoma on the arm for a week, though!

Neat moving of the tag in some pretty cold weather!

It is pretty wet out today so I have a new tag to go when Bikehigh says it is a good grab. The bike is facing the wrong way
