I'd love to have a concrete jungle like that, all of the spots in my city are puny in comparison.
what maps interface is that
Bing maps - birds eye view Basically helicopter imagery, the clarity is stalker tier. [editline]26th March 2012[/editline] [url]http://www.bing.com/maps/[/url]
oh man i have been living under a rock that's great ta
I almost had to sleep at Pyestock tonight. We Had to wait for 4 hours on the roof of the plant house before it was safe to leave.
Less than a year ago I was at my nephew's, he told me there was a school there which was about to be demolished. The place was surprisingly ridden with filth for the short time it was abandoned, it's obvious lots of hobos have slept there. Of course, thanks to this subforum I just [I]had[/I] to get in. Unfortunately, our time was sparse, and the sun was at the peak of its routine. It was also Sunday so lots of people could've seen us. It wasn't really a big school though. The front door was closed very firmly, so we went through the back which was quite obscured by alot of trees and bushes. My nephew and little brother had been there before, the fire escape door was open then, when we arrived it wasn't. Being the little vandal my little brother is, he broke a window right next to the door when he was there, so my nephew climbed into the hole and opened the door for us. Inside of the school, there was glass, paper, beer bottles, giant glass drawers all over the floor, alot of that shit everywhere. I picked up a few of the papers and had a look at them, some of them were pretty interesting. The building was very inter-connected. When you enter the front door (we didn't risk going there, though, in case we could've been seen), there is this big atrium-esq room, which has a pretty nice front desk. There are only two floors. My nephew climbed over the desk like a ninja and got behind the counter. There he found quite neat things, such as a bundle of keys, a flashlight, and also (iirc) a very neat wristwatch. There were fire extinguishers all over the place. Most of them were already empty, but the few ones that weren't were quite severely abused by us. Needless to say, it was a mess. My nephew and little brother just couldn't resist throwing all of them through glass, doors, a sink (made of surprisingly strong porcelein), and also a toilet. We found quite alot of stuff, such as a cup with a spoon in it (that spoon was quickly stuck in a wall because we threw it all over the place), and a little bit of coffee still left on the bottom of the cup. Alot of floppy disks, a giant stiletto knife, a good stack of cd's (I took some of 'em), and a few pictures of previous students, headmasters and teachers. Oh, and a bicycle, which we used to get to the physed room. There were still alot of sport balls and equipment. After we left the gym, we threw the bicycle all over the place, leaving destruction in its trail, such as ceiling light frames being totally devestated. We also came across the boiler room, which was locked, however we had the keys to get in. There were quite surprisingly big boilers for a small-scale school like this. There was no pressure on them and the building was entirely cut off from water, gas and electricity. This was without doubt the only part in the building that didn't look touched. We then found an elevator and its maintanance room. Using the keys my nephew had found, he opened the room's door, which had a little window in it to see into the elevator shaft. There wasn't very interesting stuff in it though, only the key for opening the elevator door, which we did. The elevator was on the bottom floor. [I]Everything[/I] that we could find that wasn't stuck somehow was then relocated to the bottom of the elevator shaft. Except for one extinguisher, which my little brother used for the grande finale. When we were about to leave, my little brother decided it'd be an amazing idea to get up to the top floor and throw that single fire exinguisher through a window for everyone to see. The school has been demolished half a year ago. I work as a mailman on Saturdays now, and the first block I have to deliver mail in is this exact block. It looks quite empty without the building. Oh, and I still get mail for the staff of a non-existant school. I had 5-10 letters adressed to nothing the past 2 weeks.
[QUOTE=Lost_n_found;34858926]Mary's Tower was awesome. Some assholes burned it down.[/QUOTE] There's 2 Mary's tower's? Or are you talking about the one in NJ?
oh yeah, the one in Jersey, my bad it sounded like someone was describing the same site. And Concur, be careful. That area has some dickhead cops and uptight ass nosy neighbors. I've been harassed there a few times for no good reason, I can't even imagine what would happen if they got me trespassing. Mullica on the other hand is hardly patrolled.

I only know this because my friend moved there (I'm not sure why) [editline]15th April 2012[/editline] [quote]There is absolutely no summer road access. There are some extremely rough winter roads that include ice roads. They are only open for a couple months a year during the coldest part of winter. I would recommend a rather large 4*4 to get there in the winter. It also takes about 15 - 20 hours of continuous difficult driving to get there from Prince Albert.[/quote] Definitely can't go

I don't really have any spare time, but I've always been interested in this kind of exploration. Just looking at the pictures is cool and I can't imagine what kind of awesome it would be to actually do it. Does anybody know of any good places in Western MA? Not really an urban area, but I still think there could be potential, although I don't really know where to start looking. Thoughts?

Where in Western MA exactly? You could also go check out the Hoosac Tunnel, which isn't too far from Monroe.

It's mostly foresty places, which makes me skeptical about the possibility of good urbex places. That, combined with my total lack of gear and free time, is what's keeping me from really pursuing this. But I think it would be good to have a few of these places on record in case I decide to do it in the future.
Me and a friend are going to try to get into urbex next month. It's not going to be a long time thing, just for next month and that's it. But neither of us know much about what to plan for. Can anyone give us tips, or show us some sites/resources that may help us out?
Argh! Returned to the factory with a group of friends who just graduated highschool, Door was locked and all the lower windows were boarded up with plywood. Rest well sweet prince ;_;
Does anyone know of any abandoned spots in British Columbia (preferably closer to the west-side/vancouver area)? I'm here for a month and I want something interesting to do!

I actually thought about it, just bring a battery drill and unscrew a fucking piece of plywood, and hope they didnt update the security system lol.

I know this little place near a Church, which use to be a boy scouts hall, it is closed, I want to go exploring there, I do not know what to do to avoid getting caught. And what should I take besides Water, Torch and a Camera? Oh and mobile.

I know one of the cardinal rules of urbex is "leave nothing but footprints" etc etc, but would it still be bad if one were to leave something nice, say, a large box filled with kitkats?
