I was presuming it was abandoned, because much of that neighborhood is, but I can't prove that one way or the other. I was shooting early on a Sunday morning, so it was hard to tell.

Never can tell in philly! We explored a building (with permission) that looked abandoned from the outside, but that we found out the owner was using for a salvage operation. Another nearby looked abandoned from the back, but had a brand new fenced in playground in back. The front was a daycare center

I am extremely reluctant to explore inside buildings for exactly this reason. Even if they really are abandoned, they aren't always really vacant, anyway. Squatters often take an even more dim view of your intrusion than owners might!

pretty much, yeah. We had permission though and the owner let us in. But yeah, I'd be reluctant about that too
