The Warehouse / Alter Street – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Everybody needs a place to call their own, and it sure helps if that place has pool coping. Getting a private indoor setup together is a giant pain in the ass, but the reward of skating a place that’s exactly what you want to skate is unbeatable. All I can say is- if you’re thinking about it, just go for it; its a lot to do but you’ll figure it out.
