Abandoned

I'm fascinated by modern archaeology. I love to look at photos like these and try to imagine what these places were like during their heyday.

The abandoned Divine Lorraine Hotel in North Philadelphia, PA

The Grand Abandonment: Lenoir County, North Carolina This hauntingly beautiful and grand old antebellum mansion is almost lost to nature and time.

Michigan Central Station, Detroit. Closed in 1988

Casulon Plantation - Good Hope, Georgia. This house stood for over a century and was used for tours & historic reenactments of the Civil War until 2002. An arson fire ravaged the house that year, believed to be set by people who wanted the house gone so they could have mineral rights to the quarry that stands behind the house. These ruins are all that are left of a once-great landmark.

Pool O' Chairs "This is a set of images taken in an abandoned swimming pool at the University of Rochester, in Rochester, NY. For whatever reason, 20 years ago, the school decided to dispose of old chairs in the pool, rather than a landfill. 20 years later, this is what the pool looks like."

Deep in New York City’s subway system, is a beautiful untouched station that has been nearly forgotten for years. Stunning decorations in the station include tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights running across the entire curve of the station in miniature imitation of Grand Central Station. The station lies south of Brooklyn Bridge – City Hall. It was closed in 1945 due to low ridership. This beautiful site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
