Once the center of a bustling crossroads, now just a shell of its former self. The Beury Building is a bombed-out 14 story bank highrise which is one of the only examples of art-deco architecture outside of Center City.

  •  Interesting Features
    There are two large bank vaults in the basement, as well as a few other small gems strewn throughout. The building also offers some rather good views of the surrounding area. The best views can be obtained from the penthouse floors and the winchhouse, but access to them is extremely difficult and dangerous, for the only stairs leading up to them from the top-most main (11th) floor are rotting out and literally on the verge of collapse.

  • fences
  • welded doors
  • wooden boarding
  • bricked up windows and doors

    Constructed in 1926, it was best known for housing the 1st National Bank of North Philadelphia. The building was vacated sometime in the early 80s.
