Abandoned Structures and Urban Decay. I try to be selective with my Pins and I'll either pin a) places I want to use as a setting b) Amazing/different/unusual places.
Paris, Under your Feet This breathtaking pool of glistening turquoise water under creamy ecclesiastical stone vaulting is the underground water reservoir tank of Mountsouris, a hidden treasure in the south of the Paris. Sitting undisturbed beneath the feet of unknowing Parisians, the original entrance is unfortunately closed to the public. The photograph above was taken by urban explorer photographer De Graaf.
Abandoned Pfizer Chemical Plant in Brooklyn,NY (Pfizer was founded as a fine chemicals business in 1849 by German-American cousins Charles Pfizer and Charles Erhardt at the corner of Harrison Ave and Bartlett Street. Their first success was an anti-parasitic called santonin, though citric acid production was the real early moneymaker)
Abandoned Fort Ord Veterinary Hospital,Salinas, CA (California’s Fort Ord operated for 77 long years, finally closing in 1994. Many of its buildings were abandoned and though some were demolished, most still stand “as is”. The latter category includes an assortment of WWII-vintage Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital buildings. Believe it or not, the United States Army employed horse-drawn artillery and mounted cavalry patrols to help defend the west coast during the war)
the abandoned Packard Plant in Detroit, largest abandoned factory in the world.
