Sweet Toof Wharehouse

Sweet Toof Warehouse

I had been looking for this spot and I had a hunch of where it might be. I saw on Instagram and Flickr a bunch of pillars covered in vertical Sweet Toof pieces. The place was 8 stories, but the … Continue reading

Morgue

Morgue

Okay, really it was a full hospital, but the morgue room was a first for my Urban Ex adventures – as I’ve covered hospitals before. Still no ghost though. Interestingly, I did find a a graffiti piece from a Bay … Continue reading

Mental Power Plant

Mental Power Plant

From the same Asylum I’ve been covering recently, this was the power plant – and by far the most awesome building. Lots of nice industrial architecture, machinery, catwalks, and etc. [Note pictures coming soon, when I recover my Flickr]

Ghost House

Ghost House

When heading to this location, we bumped into a mother-daughter ghost hunting team. Apparently they had seen this location on a haunting tv documentary, and they retold the story of the ghost that was supposedly here. We didn’t find any … Continue reading

Roofless Building

Roofless Building

For a lack of a better name, I called this location “Roofless Building” as that was it’s most defining characteristic. Not too much to see here, other than beautiful decay. [Note pictures coming soon, when I recover my Flickr]

In Patient Houses

In Patient Houses

The NY area certainly has a lot of abandoned mental wards. This is yet another, tens of miles away from the last I covered. These houses in particular were living quarters for some patients. We entered the building shown in … Continue reading

Fort by the Water

Fort by the Water

This old fort, now turned to a park, was a subway and a bus trip away, over an hour IIRC. But it was a nice to get out on a beautiful day. Besides the stone fort area, there were several officer – style … Continue reading

Distort Factory

DISTORT Warehouse

I peeped this building when trawling Google maps for NYC graffiti yards. It had the tell-tale signs of an abandonment from the graffiti visible in Satellite view. I eventually made my way out there a few weeks ago whilst graff hunting, … Continue reading

Farmers Colony

NY Farmers Colony

The New York Farmers Colony has an interesting, sordid history. It began as a poor house, before social security systems were in place. People unable to care for themselves were sent there to do farm labor. The produce of the farm … Continue reading

Graffiti Canyon

Graffiti Canyon

After exploring under the freeway, I decided to check out a building that had some graffiti on it. It lead me to a path that went off into the woods. Eventually it turned into a tunnel which lead to a … Continue reading

Power Plant

Power Plant

My last post was a power plant and I’m pretty sure this place is too, though I couldn’t find any history on it. This was a really cool, completely unplanned and unexpected explore. Last week I met someone named Bobby Hicks … Continue reading

Power Plant

Gates of Hell

My 101st Urban Ex post.. w00t! Time flies, I wonder what lies in my next hundred spots? 😀 This abandoned Power Plant was nick named the Gates of Hell by explorers before me. I don’t know why, it seemed lovely … Continue reading

The Quad

The Quad

The days after a major NYC snow storm I found myself once again Urban Exploring a giant sprawling complex of abandoned buildings. This time, I went to the sub-section called “The Quad.” The area has 4 pairs of large wings, … Continue reading

Steam Tunnels and Roof Tops

Steam Tunnels and Roof Tops

Sometimes when you’ve done something for awhile, you start to think you’ve seen everything. I’ve been exploring abandoned things and drain tunnels for a few years now. But nothing could have prepared me for my most recent adventure: a giant … Continue reading

Psychiatric Center

Psychiatric Center

The other day I went out with another awesome explorer I met online. We drove an hour away from the city to this magical land of abandoned buildings. This sprawling complex was huge and full of old medical / psychiatric buildings. We … Continue reading

Grain Silos

Grain Silo Terminal

Early on in my adventures I did some silos back in the Bay Area. When I moved to NYC I quickly learned of silos over on the east coast that were similar in age and style to the Bay Area’s … Continue reading

Screaming Cage

Screaming Cage

This was a gigantic warehouse – basically two in one. In was comprised of two separate buildings, joined with a large gate connecting them. In the middle was a creepy cage – see the thumbnail and pics below. While exploring … Continue reading

Brooklyn Warehouse

Brooklyn Warehouse

Not to far away from Smells house, I was able to find this mostly empty warehouse, but it was coated with wall to wall graffiti.

Smells House, 1886

Smells House, 1886

This warehouse was built in 1886 – that’s, like, 100 years before I was born. Interestingly, the construction was made primarily out of wood. In place of steel i-beams there were wooden support beams. It’s pretty creepy to think that this … Continue reading

Bus Lot

Bus Lot

While heading to another urban ex spot, I noticed this bus lot on the way. The walls seemed like legal walls, and the gate was wide open and inviting, so I spent a few moments flicking and grabbing panos of … Continue reading

Abandoned Subway Station

Subway Station

Last weekend I finally got into my first ‘real’ spot in NYC: an Abandoned subway station! It felt good to finally do some real exploring. The spot was tricky to get to – I had to climb a fence, and … Continue reading
