Empty Lot of the Week-- February 7th

Corduroy Building Lot

Bounded by Arch, Appletree, 8th Street and the African American Museum of Philadelphia

Pictured: Emptiness.

                       What a crappy lot.  Not only is this ocean of asphalt in an unfortunate location, its also surrounded by a multitude of ugly buildings. This lot is part of the barrier between Chinatown and the Historic District. When you stand on the block where this pile of tarmac sits, you can't even tell that Chinatown is only a block away.
