“It all started for me in Philadelphia because it’s old enough, and it’s got enough things in the air to really work on itself. It’s decaying but it’s fantastically beautiful, filled with violence, hate and filth.”

— David Lynch

  1. That image is the abandoned Willow Street steam generating plant. I used to take to the streets back between 1990 through 2000 and feed and clothe homeless people.
    There was a shelter a few blocks away from this building where a couple friends and I would set up tables and serve soup, sandwiches and coffee to the homeless.
