Another Spot Bites the Dust

There was a Fishtown fire early last week at Front Street just south of Girard which took the life of a another skatespot. The aban­doned warehouse/​factory is owned by Bart Blatstein who built the Piazza and got rid of the D.I.Y. spot up the road from it on 2nd street.

There have been plenty of tricks done on this step/​ledge but the first one that came to mind was from Dan Sawosko’s Feed the Fix part even if he didn’t actu­ally skate the stair as a ledge. Post in the com­ments other video clips that are out there from this ledge/​spot.

My homie Dan Murphy took the first photo in this post which is from a set of pho­tos from the fire he put up on face­book. If you are inter­ested in see­ing what the inside of that ware­house looked like, Dan also has you cov­ered.

Lastly, the bot­tom stair was lay­ing on a pile of debris the next day when I went to check it out. Below are some of the pho­tos I took after the build­ing had col­lapsed. They were still spray­ing it with water to make sure it was fully out.
