|May 21, 2019||Eastern State Penitentiary
|Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but today stands in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cell blocks and empty guard towers. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America's most notorious criminals, including Slick Willie Sutton and Scarface Al Capone.
Please send your mobile phone number to Fred Apelian if you plan to attend.
The Eastern State Penitentiary is located at 2027 Fairmount Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19130. GPS coordinates: 39.967277, -75.172688
Meet in the parking lot adjacent to the prison at 9:45 am. It is a Municipal Lot, and is fairly reasonably priced. Its GPS coordinates are: 39.967332, -75.174754
There is a tripod fee, of $10.00; however, it is good for one year.
