Re: Abandoned Places - World Wide
You know, this is a huge country, ans what's seen in these videos and pics is just a very tiny part of it. And Detroit is an extreme example [unequaled] of urban decay. But I will say this: It's very difficult for people to live and work in most rural areas of America today, and they are in bad shape everywhere. Somebody mentioned the hundreds of abandoned towns in Texas and wondered where the people went. They went to Houston, Dallas, or some other big city metro area. It's the same everywhere else.

Re: Abandoned Places - World Wide
Thanks OP!

I have recently been looking at these sites realizing how this country has been abandoened like this. With all the homeless families in this economy, it would be wonderful if there was an organization to have those will and able to work to restore some of these places to use as homes/apartments.


Here is a site, with a clickable map up the Hudson River, of abandoned mansions/estates, factories, schools etc. in the Hudson River Valley of New York State:

They state is increasingly in a hurry to knock these down suddenly. What a shame!

Abandoned Public School
This is the former Bowmanville Senior Public School. It originally started as a high school when it opened in 1921 transitioning to only grade 7 and 8 during its last 30 years before closing in June of 2007.


Abandoned school, ghost town of Sumner, Oklahoma
Built in 1921, it was one of the first consolidated schools in Oklahoma and the first in Noble county. The original brick structure was built in 1920-21 and included a partial basement. A sand stone gymnasium was added in 1940, built by the WPA. The center section linking the two was built in 1945 and added to in 1954, which included the kitchen/cafeteria. The school was listed in the national historic register on April 26th, 1996.

If by horseshit; you mean 100% spot on, Then I agree.
It is the true story of intitlements and Union labor.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30444077


No, I mean the other, other kind of horseshit, the metaphorical type with the metaphorical stink. Oh, and btw, it's "entitlements", which interestingly enough was a legal term whose vernacular sense was employed by certain interests for the purpose of framing an argument.

Now for for the sake of decorum if you feel this subject is worth debating, post the video in a new thread and we can keep up the dialogue. As for this thread, it is perfect JUST the way it is, an urbex thread. So with that in mind...

 Quoting: thomowen20


When something considered a failure is clearly due to leftists and their policies, the issues are "complex". When the failure is considered to be on the part of Republicans, the blame goes to "Republicans."

But you know what? The left OWNS this (and California, and Washington DC, and Illinois). Detroit elected a series of liberal mayors and other officials since the 1960's. Not ONE of these people made changes that weren't destructive in some way. And this is the end result. It proves you can't create prosperity with more government and more confiscation of wealth. Proves it.

Ask yourself this: why is it that states and municipalities led by conservatives prosper economically? Texas, North Dakota, Louisiana, San Diego (probably the ONLY California city that isn't failing) just to name a few. Are the issues "complex"? Nope. They're very simple: the engines of their economies, businesses and the people, keep more of their money.

Those places are as mysteriously attracting as they are telling when it comes to the downfall of what could have been the greatest nation on earth. America is today's Egypt or Rome.

Look at Michigan Central Station then and now, for me it stands for everything that went wrong in this country. I first came to the USA when I was 23, to TSA, still an intact working class. Now I'm 56 and the last time I've been to the US all I could say was boy how times have changed.

Americans are lucky though to have a big country with enough space and beautiful nature. In Europe there is simply not enough room for so many and so huge abandoned places.

Great thread, 5 stars from me.
