Only the diehard need apply. A little work needs to be done: ie. cleanup. A broom, a shovel, a brand new deck with big soft wheels. Play it safe and once clean it will last a long time. Just don't leave your trash laying around and stay clear of weekdays. If anyone plans on going down let me know and I'll get some footage and post it on my site.

Hey skateboarders, I came across this bank in King of Prussia. Check out the Jan. issue of Transworld, the location is featured.
The address is:
580 East Swedesford Rd.
King of Prussia, PA
I wouldn't go during the week because it is adjoined to a business. I went on a Sunday and as you'll see it was empty. Be sure to respect the grounds as to not ruin it for the rest of us (clean up after yourselves!) and keep clear of the highway, cops love to roam that area - it is not far from The King of Prussia Mall and where 76 W meets 202 before getting on the PA turnpike.
