Graffiti Pier

Officially named Pier 124, Graffiti Pier was originally a coal mining pier along the Delaware River, next to the Port Richmond and Fishtown neighborhoods of Philadelphia.

The pier was shut down in 1991 when Conrail moved its mining operations to Baltimore as a cost saving measure. All of its heavy machinery and train tracks were removed, leaving only two concrete structures with rows of support beams.

This location has become a mecca for street and graffiti artists alike.
