Jackson Sanatorium

April 22, 2017

Regarded as one of the easiest explores around, naturally we were spotted on the way in and ejected by the police. ┬áThe officer was very nice to us and called the owner to see if they were willing to let us go. ┬áThis is one time where having a massive amount of camera equipment with…

Amsterdam, NY Warehouse

June 2, 2010

I don’t have a lot of information on this warehouse. I got a tip from a family friend that there were some abandonments in Amsterdam…that it was a one factory town and that factory had closed…and managed to confirm the info online. It seemed like a chill spot so we stopped here on our way…

Hotel Adler

May 12, 2010

This was the first stop on a whirlwind 4 day exploring trip with my friends Dave and Dan. I had obtained information on the hotel from someone I knew from exploring forums, and we took the long drive out here in one shot. I have to say, it was an excellent way to kick off…

Auburn, ME Mill

April 24, 2010

This Auburn, Maine mill had been through a couple of different renovations in its time. It had remnants of industrial use, but sections of the building had been renovated into apartments as well. Squatters had definitely been the most recent tenants.

Sweating Bullets State Hospital

April 4, 2010

Unfortunately, this is one of those locations where the best parts of the story will have to remain a mystery. There was nothing particularly difficult about exploring this place but, being a 100% active campus with abandoned wings interspersed with active wings, things were definitely very interesting. I remember that the day we went here…

Brewster Projects

December 8, 2009

These Brush Park housing projects were home to many notable people including Diana Ross and Smokey Robinson. They were also the inspiration for the claymation series “The PJ’s”. I had my reservations about visiting the Brewster projects and the drive through the neighborhood up to them did little to allay my fears.

C.F. Smith

November 4, 2009

C.F. Smith was a grocery chain in the Detroit area that operated from 1910 into the 1950s. The buildings we explored were clearly a warehouse set up to store items for the chain. As with so many buildings like this, they had clearly seen a number of uses over the years before finally falling in…

Augusta Tissue

June 16, 2009

This tissue paper mill closed down under somewhat shady circumstances after changing owners several times. The mill was even held by the federal government for a time while the courts worked out what to do with some of the contested assets. During this time the mill was well secured and an extremely risky place to…
