For the second time this month I’ve gravitated towards an old coal mine [read previous] that has manifested into creative works of art.
Graffiti Pier, also known as Pier 124 and once used for a coal mining operation, now houses the work of Philly’s great graffiti artists. There’s also a sweet view of the Delaware River at the end of the pier. Though not ideal, you’ll also find people diving into the river and fishing.
Not a great place to bring kids or dogs for that matter, unfortunately, it’s loaded with broken glass and empty spray cans, but definitely something to admire if you’re into street art and hidden gems.
