I live in a city that shows a huge contrast in areas of development. They do more renovation than rebuilding, hence there are many abandoned old buildings and factories.
I got into the habit of urban since I’m interested in photography and am always looking for nice views to capture. While practicing some steel wool spinning, there was a couple that were also rummaging nearby, and saw the light of the flames I was using and came by to see what I was doing.
After talking a bit, I came to find out they were also into urban exploring (because why else would they be at an abandoned factory). They share a list of places I could go, but since all these places are abandoned, they don’t have titles, they are all coordinates.
This is 37.5132989, -77.4508040. the rawest art space in the city. A little-known secret among graffiti artists, urban explorers and skaters (who have a very interesting habit of cleaning up hazards in this space)
