    Discovery Island and River Country at Disney World, very cool stuff, abandoned amusement parks are awesomely creepy. Apparently shut down due to a combination of low attendance/new attractions, and a deadly bacteria residing in the water surrounding the island

    heres a blog of the guy who fucking swam across the lake to get to the thing, I'm all for checking out cool places, but FUCK that, you won't catch me swimming in unknown, murky, and possibly deadly waters to get to it

        Detroit used to be a Beautifully vibrant city full of all the things that make a great city great. My Grand parents fled the city in the early 40's though they still talk about how great the water front used to be and how safe a place was to live then, though by the late 40's there was some early writing on the walls. It was not until the roits of 67 that it got the reputation it has today. I am not going to get into the more controversial reasons for the cities decline. Its sad to see, though it seems there is a bit of a hipster revolution near America park and ford field trying to gain a foot hold, form something I read a few months ago. As much as I hate hipsters anything in a positive direction is good to see for detroit.
        thats so goddamn sad.

          Abandoned stuff like this is crazy to me as I grew up in a tourist town where every square inch of property is worth a ton, so nothing ever just sits. Having an entire building just not be used is so foreign to me. I see these places and think about all the cool stuff I could use the space for.
          I'm the same way. I live in a place where buildings are only empty for a short time before they are torn down or sold and used.

          I've read about that. I guess there is shit in the water that can make you sick.

          I love creepy/abandoned places. They are the only things that genuinely scare me.

          Chinese Ghost cities are awesome.

                I always thought it would be sweet to buy some abandoned city and use it as a place to have real car chase type fun. For example: running from the cops, or whatever. Wall it off to the public and sign a waiver. You could set up a "real" police force and rob a bank or something.

                  Henryton Center/Hospital : WIKI






                  My walkthrough pics from 2008

                  Great place to walk through, allegedly torn down now, but I haven't been there since 2009 or so. If it hasn't been torn down and you want to go park to the south and walk across the stream, then up the hill, over the train tracks, past the power plant. Do not park at the front gate or try to park on the other side of the tunnel (which is notable for some reason I forget). Took decent pics in 2008, but we decided to leave when a police officer rolled through and parked. When I was in school we occasionally played airsoft there with as many as 20 people, good times! Thanks for leaving it to rot Maryland!

                    So what are the reasons a project like this just stops? I find it interesting, I'm majoring in Project Management and work on some fairly large local projects, it just blows my mind that so much money could get thrown at something.......then it all just stops.

                      That's what happens when the government is funding the projects. I'm amazed by it to. Building something just hoping 100,000 people are going to move in is just crazy.

                          1.4 billion. It was a privately funded operation, not government. IIRC. I believe the defaulted loan caused the bank that issued it to fail.

                            Wow I lived in buffalo for years and never knew about this! Although seeing as how many other abandoned factories line the coast line I'm not surprised, I wish I did some more exploring when I lived there tho

                            I also grew up in the neighboring city of Rochester, which has a small abandoned sub way system. I never actually went inside, but down in the city it runs right underneath one of the bridges, we walked up to it and looked down in it, it was the middle of winter and it was a constant warm breeze coming out of it, was so fucking creepy but cool at the same time

                            Im going to have to start researching Phoenix now haha, although I've been getting myself more lost out in the desert looking for ghost towns on my motorcycle, Ill have to start seeing if theres anything worth checking out, its a huge city

                            EDIT: just noticed my post count, 666, how appropriate haha

                              those are in China and their GDP was/is based on constant expansion so they built cities just to continue to show the growth year over year even though NO one lives in them....

                              there is some tinfoil hat shit that also goes as to why they were built but I will leave that alone
