• UrbEx: Abandoned Warehouse in Gilbert, Arizona
    186 replies, posted
So there's this abandoned warehouse and other building in the Gilbert/Mesa area in AZ, Greenfield and the 202 in case anyone lives here and wants to go there. Anyways, I'd been there before, but not for exploratory/photography purposes. I decided the other day that today I'd go there with my brother and take a bunch of pictures of things like graffiti and the totally fucked up warehouse, so without further ado, here's a bunch of pictures!!!

Lots of anti-semitic graffiti out there. Thus concludes part one! In a few hours or so I'll post part two, where I explore this other building: [img]http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs421.snc4/46427_10150240819110372_583035371_14655331_3686631_n.jpg[/img]
Ice Shit and Super Dong sound like some swell guys.
ok [highlight](User was banned for this post ("why reply?" - GunFox))[/highlight]
I wish I could do UrbEx...
Arizona looks nice.
Pretty cool.
All you've gotta do is drive around and look for abandoned places. Park moderately far away and be subtle about it.
Wow. Some nice pieces and tags in there.
[QUOTE=Jack_Thompson;24451292]I'm too much of a pussy to go on the roof,[/QUOTE] You're joking Otherwise, interesting sights.
Oh god the creepy hallways...
[QUOTE=hl2poo;24451410]Arizona looks nice.[/QUOTE] Late august to late november are pretty nice.
Looks like it was popular for parties.
[QUOTE=Abrown516;24451435]You're joking Otherwise, interesting sights.[/QUOTE] I'm a big guy, and a lot of the ceilings are rather destroyed. Plus since it's right next to the freeway, pretty much any cop on there would have been able to see me up there.
love these threads
Obviously some Transformers be fighting there.
nice
I need to find more cooler places in Southern California.
I chuckled heartily at the "Seinfeil"
Not that creepy, but very cool!
I wish people didn't vandalize abandoned places. It really degrades the adventure of it all.
Haha, I want UrbExing this summer. I have a court date next month. It was a $24millon dollar plant that was 'abandoned' everything was crisp and new in there, felt like I was venturing through L4D. Well fuck.
Holy shit, you live near my uncle, hes just a few miles from there...
Forgot another hallway picture!

And it's got plenty of creepy hallways.

Oh god the graffiti in there is awesome.
Community service, basically cleaning the plant back up. After we discovered you could get in people decided to trash the place. there was literally 100,000s of dollars in damages there. I feel bad for the guy who owns it, every fire extinguisher set off, every computer destroyed files and important stuff gone. Locked doors kicked off hinges it's a disaster in there now.

I remember hotboxing a shower in the Nurses room, good times.
