I will write this — If you’ve ever stood in the Ikea parking lot and thought “they should do something with that eyesore,” head over to savetheunitedstates.org and make a donation! The organization that now owns the ship is raising money to turn it into a museum.
G T Manlio Drugs, 7th and Carpenter Street, Bella Vista, South Philly.
This is one of my absolute favorite buildings in Philadelphia. It sits in the middle of Bella Vista which, I just found out, is the most searched Phillly neighborhood on Truila. The curved glass, bay windows and tile stoop…it would be one beautiful renovated building if someone did it with historical accuracy.
I caught this guy scaling a wall of an abandoned factory (this one to be exact). He slipped into the building in seconds. When I got closer all I could see was new looking, intact plywood. One of the pieces must have been converted into a door. You couldn’t tell by looking at it, though.
