Amsterdam, NY Warehouse

By dave | 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…

During this time the mill was well secured and an extremely risky place to…

Central Steam Power Plant – May 2007

By dave | May 12, 2009

Central Steam Power Plant in Fitchburg, MA was a great place to explore. It was always a reliable, interesting place to bring explorers visiting from other states or to go when you wanted to take some photos but didn’t want to deal with a big hassle.
