Warehouse in North Philadelphia

Found this abandoned factory/warehouse near a train station in North Philly and went to go check it out. A few blocks to the northwest of it there's half a dozen other abandoned buildings that look kinda neat. I tried to do some research on this place but I couldn't find anything at all, so if any of you know anything about it I'd be interested to hear it.

In addition to some pictures I also got about 15 minutes of video inside. Around 6 minutes in I started hearing what sounded like someone walking up the stairs so I hid behind a wall. Other than that it's mostly just footage of me getting scared every time I trip over something that makes a loud noise.











































I'm not sure if there was anyone in the tent, but I didn't really want to find out so I just skipped this floor.






Five stories up I realized there were no railings








This ladder didn't feel sturdy


Don't know what this was for. I'm guessing the building had something to do with trains.

Holy shit, I know this building. I was down doing some shooting in Philly, and just as I started approaching this building, I heard the telltale sound of a siren behind me. Sure enough, there was a cop who had just turned the corner and saw me. I got lucky, because someone had stolen the 'NO TRESPASSING' sign, so I only got a warning.

I couldn't find much on the history of the place either. I hit it up on new years 2014. That side street near it is actually pretty active. I'm lucky my friend and I got through without no one noticing us. For being empty it was still pretty neat. I remember climbing all over the top of that elevator room you showed, and enjoying the view from the roof.

It was a former automotive manufacturing facility as far as my knowledge goes.

Passed it on the train a few times heading into/out of philly...




Yes that's right I'm an actual real-life British person.

This was always a great place to just get your feet wet. There was never a whole lot left but still interesting.




Closer than you think~ When you dig up the past, you tend to get dirty.

It's even better at night.
No need for a camera there.
Radio, beer, etc are required though.

That bus would be an amazing rescue if it's interior isn't destroyed... but it probably is.

I'm surprised someone took the elevator equipment.

You are thinking of a different building, currently under renovation.

Stopped by this place over the past weekend. One of several warehouses in this area. I love the way they look.
