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

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

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

Maybe a Bank

Maybe a Bank?

Not sure what the original purpose of this building was, but it does have a large walk-in safe on the first floor. It does look like it was fancy inside for it’s time, and being three stories would have lots … Continue reading

Gym

Gym

This large gym has been abandoned for some time. In addition to large, open, sporting area, there’s also three stories to explore. Interestingly, the stories go downward instead of upward. Although you enter the building on the first floor (maybe … Continue reading

Bay Area Wandering

Bay Area Wandering

My exploring buddy goes by the handle @bayareawanderer on Instagram. Over the past year he’s been compiling footage of the urban exploration and graffiti yards we’ve visited. He finally made a video, and it came out wonderful. Check it out!

The Office

The Office

When we found out about this place we were expecting a warehouse. But what we got was totally better: a slick ex-office building from a Silicon Valley company. The inside wasn’t just a big empty square, it was a maze … Continue reading

Ice Rink

Ice Rink

We actually found this spot when we stopped by to flick the GATs / Attica mural outside. When I realized where we were, we had to peep the inside. Unfortunately we were late to the party on this one. Prior … Continue reading

GATS Motel

GATS Motel

We were driving along the freeway when I spotted a large GATS on a building facing the road. We got off at the next exit and hunted it down. This appears to be an abandoned motel consisting of two different … Continue reading

Magma Mansion

Magma Mansion

Discovered this place by accident when crawling Google Satellite looking for The Cranes. The story goes, the owner purchased the property and began building a mansion using lava rock imported from Hawaii. Supposedly the stones were cursed and caused the … Continue reading

Bunkers in the Hills

Bunkers in the Hills

This was an exciting day, hitting up nearly every WW2 era bunker in a cluster up in the San Francisco Bay’s hills. Some of them have been buffed, and some of them remained home to some of our favorite graffiti … Continue reading

The Tag Cathedral

Tag Cathedral

This abandoned Bay Area warehouse has been dubbed the “Tag Cathedral,” by locals. It features wall-to-wall graffiti that spans several years, making this quite a reputable yard. We had been wanting to find this place for a awhile so it … Continue reading

Bunker Madness

Barrack Madness

This is a huge sprawling complex of abandoned barracks. We painstakingly entered dozens of them. It seems as if a local group of air-soft teams has been using this complex for their war simulation. There were tons of plastic BBs … Continue reading

Burned Bunkers

Burned Barracks

This was a complex of fire-damaged barracks. The buildings were super unstable, so we had to be careful while placing every footstep. In one of the first areas we entered, the top story was completely sinking into the first story … Continue reading

Creepy Bunkers Clown

Creepy Barracks

These abandoned, decaying barracks have been rotting away in the East bay for years. We decided to check them out on the way home from The Bulb. I happened upon these several years ago, when I was alone on a solo … Continue reading
