There is something that has always fascinated me about abandoned places. It must be the invitation to unravel the story behind them.

Abandoned Town of Kolmanskop, Namibia
Richard Ehrlich - Nambia (Sand Houses)
Kolmanskop is a ghost town in southern Namibia, a few kilometers inland from the port of Lüderitz. During the 1950's the town was deserted and the dunes began to reclaim what was always theirs. Soon the metal screens collapsed and the pretty gardens and tidy streets were buried under the sand. Doors and windows creaked on their hinges, cracked window panes stared sightlessly across the desert. A new ghost town had been born Photography by Richard Ehrlich.
Michigan Central Station | This is the original Detroit / Windsor tunnel – the Michigan Central Railway Tunnel, opened in 1910. Many people dont even know its there, but it passes behind Michigan Central Station, and submerges before you get to Fort Street.

The Michigan Theater...This isn't really a "favorite" place, but it absolutely blows my mind. I didn't realize what we were driving into. Suddenly I happened to look up and about fell over when I saw this.
The 1929 Michigan Theater in Detroit now serves as a car park. This makes me sad.

Opened in 1894 as Midway Park in Westport, MA; successful until the mid-1980s as Lincoln Park Casino. A fatal accident on this coaster, the "Comet" (built in 1946) was the beginning of the end for the park.

Rochester, NY Subway. It was opened in 1927, but it never built tracks to take people to and from the suburbs, and by 1957 it was out of business. Much of the track was simply abandoned.

Old Freight Tunnel, Chicago, IL. Underneath downtown Chicago, 60 miles of abandoned tunnels exist about 40 feet beneath the surface of the city. These tunnels were dug in the first years of the 20th century, and from 1906 until 1959 the Chicago Tunnel Company ran miniature trains in these tunnels to delivery coal, mail, and freight to buildings in the loop, and to remove ash and waste from from the same buildings.
Chicago's underground freight tunnels. 40' below the surface, only 6' wide and 7' high. Tiny trains traveled from basement to basement delivering mail to businesses, dropping of heating coal and hauling away cinders. Construction began in 1899. As businesses stopped heating with coal furnaces, the main excuse for its existence began to fade and the freight line faded with it, finally succumbing in 1959. The tunnels were flooded in 1992.

Cincinnati's abandoned subway. Interestingly, the country’s largest abandoned subway tunnel is not in New York, Chicago or Boston but in Cincinnati. Six stations were built and 16 miles of tunnel were completed before the project lost steam and was abandoned.

This is the Laurel Hill Tunnel, a remarkable feature of the original Pennsylvania Turnpike. Originally the vision of a railroad man, the tunnel was begun with picks and shovels in the 1800s, but the work stopped short when the railroad project fell through. It would be left to the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to finish the task 55 years later. Eleven men gave their lives to complete the marvel of modern engineering but it outlived its usefulness after only 24 years.

abandoned City Hall NYC subway stop | New York City’s Hidden ‘City Hall’ Subway Station – Pictures
New York City’s Hidden Subway Station. Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station. It was opened in 1904, however the station was closed and boarded up in 1945. City Hall Subway, New York City
CITY HALL SUBWAY STATION | MANHATTAN | NEW YORK | USA: *New York City Subway* Deep under old New York, lies abandoned platforms, train tracks and entire train stations. Some, maybe glimpsed by passengers on some lines, others lay hidden behind doors or flights of stairs. The most startling, is the terminal which rests beneath City Hall Park, an opulent and beautiful show-piece, but deserted and largely forgotten since the 1940s
Opened in 1904 and designed by Rafael Guastavino, the City Hall subway station was intended to be the crown jewel of the original New York City subway line. The station was closed in 1945 and has remained that way to date. Originally, commuters were required to disembark at the Brooklyn Bridge station before the train made its way back uptown. In recent years, passengers have been permitted to remain on the train while it passes through this stunning and historic station.

The original St. Clair tunnel, which links Port Huron, Michigan with Sarnia, Ontario, was the first railroad tunnel to pass beneath a river. In its day it was the longest river tunnel in the world and the first cast iron tunnel of its kind. During its years of operation, the tunnel claimed several lives, saw two failed terrorist attempts and even had one birth. It has been closed to rail traffic since 1994 when a new tunnel was created.

.In early 1962, a fire began in Centralia, PA's garbage dump, which happened to have been built on top of a coal seam. The coal caught fire and spread into the mine. It is still burning to this day. Today there are only a few hearty residents left. In 2002, the US Postal Service revoked the borough's Zip Code.

I've been here several times. The place is pretty eerie. I was taking photos right by this big old crack and a jogger came running by... Seemed like a strange place to go for a run, especially because my lungs were burning after spending an hour or so there.
When the Pennsylvania Turnpike first opened from Carlisle to Irwin in 1940, the new toll road was truly “America’s Tunnel Highway.” A trip from one end to the other would take a motorist through seven different tunnels
