Gun Factory

Gun Factory

This place was a couple hours away by train, but I was happy to see some of my favorite NYC artists painted out here. You can see me posing by a GOOMBA in the thumbnail. This was an old gun … Continue reading

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

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

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

The Farm

The Farm

Every now and then fans of gmiller.net reach out to me. (Feel free to do so!) One fan hooked me up with this spot, and I’m thankful. I had never seen or heard of this spot prior – it’s completely … Continue reading

Cheifs Tunnel

Chiefs Tunnel

Like the HYSU Tunnel, this area seems to be named after the Chiefs. We did find some sweet Musks in here too!

Swampy School

Swampy School

We had a lead on this spot previously and it turned out to be a different abandoned school in a semi-nearby area. Discouraged, we went home empty handed. It was good news when we found the actual location and hit … Continue reading

Asterisk 2.0

Asterisk 2.0

Several years ago my exploring buddy and I got ourselves into one of the most memorable adventures: a giant Asterisk shaped building with over 400 rooms. Well, there was actually two of them, and at the time the second one was … Continue reading

Maintenance Doors

Maintenance Doors

I actually did a very similar spot to these years ago, so I kinda knew what to expect. An Instagrammer I followed alluded to the benefits of checking if maintenance doors are open. We figured out where the spot probably … Continue reading

BTR School

BTR School

This school, I believe, is over 100 years old. It left a beautiful building behind filled with graffiti. With four floors and a basement level, it took over three hours to explore completely. Keep an eye out for the giant ballroom … Continue reading

More Cranes!

More Cranes!

Much much earlier in my adventures I had visited and climbed some cranes. That was one of my most cherished exploring memories so I was ecstatic to find some more easily accessible, easily climbable cranes! Well, truth be-told I only … Continue reading

CCTV Urinal Warehouse

CCTV Urinal

I’m not sure if this warehouse is actually abandoned. It’s really neat and clean inside. I decided to poke my head in through a hole and saw a sweet CCTV door and a urinal with a CCTV face draw on. … Continue reading

Mini Cathedral

Mini Cathedral

The architecture and the environment this spot is located at reminded me of the Tag Cathedral. There was a small shed next to it with some machines and a basic CCTV handstyle on the roof. Outside there were some rather … 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

Beach Pipes

Beach Pipes

I’ve known about this spots location and have been wanting to check it out for awhile. The outside is easy to check out, and probably familiar to people who walk their dogs on the beach. But what’s inside is whats … Continue reading

Fallen Giant

Fallen Giant

This tunnel at one time was an epic underground art gallery, but I was late to the game on this one and missed it. The city came through and buffed the whole thing – apparently this creek is extremely dangerous … Continue reading

HYSU Tunnel

HYSU Tunnel + Neighbor Tunnel

The word on the street is the HYSU crew (Have You Seen Us?) claimed a creek tunnel to themselves as their personal showcase for HYSU graff. They’ll even paint over anyone else who dares bomb the tunnel – Girafa learned … Continue reading

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

Tank In The Hills

Tank in the Hills

On our way to another adventure we discovered this disproportionately tall tank in the hills. It seems to be out of use, as you can actually climb inside it. It was covered in graffiti so it made for some interesting … Continue reading
