    Anybody into exploring old complex\'s?

    My wife and I "accidentally" drove through here tonight. She was a little freaked at how sudden it appears, and overall, it was pretty freaky. Not much of Long Island is "secluded", nor is anything like this more than 10 feet from a security guard, but this huge complex was just sitting there, no guard, nothing. We drove through some points that looked reallly spooky... I can't wait til the kids are old enough not to be traumatized; if this place is still standing and abandoned, I'm going to take them there to scare the crap outta them... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif


    edit:
    We drove up to building 18, then around to building 22/23/24. I have fleeting memories of "interesting" times around the water tower when I was a teenager before all those buildings were demolished...

    I love exploring old closed down factorys, and warehouses. I know it's not the smartest thing too do, lot of those old places are condemed for a good reason, but I still do alittle tresspassing from time to time. I just love looking around in them.

    Old houses and barns are fun too

    There's a house I really shouldn;t have been in (I blame it mostly on a moron I used to hang out with)

    Anyway it had been abandoned for a while andI found a letter from 1947 and very old products, like soad and toothpaste

    The old barns in the middle of nowhere have an odd spiritual feel too. Humanity enveleped in time

    That's awesome... I would LOVE to find a relic like that, but this area's so friggin overpopulated that any sites like that are either totally vandalized or developed...

    Right up the street from me we used to have a place like that, but it was torn down a few years ago. An abandoned tuburculosis hospital known as the Essex County Sanitoriun. Was an awesome place to go exploring and pretty scarey too. Had underground tunnels connecting the different buildings. Now developers (go figure) are going to build several hundred homes on an otherwise open wild habitat. The deer and turkey are already starting to move down off the mountain and into our yards and roads. Literally dozens of deer standing in the field right off the main road. There was even an article in the local paper about a women being chased into her house by a bunck of wild turkeys!!! If anyone in interested in seeing what the place looked like, click here . I sure miss it. Abandoned places are really hard to find around these parts nowadays.

    That sounds cool RJ, go for it and send me pics!

    I got into this whole thing by checking out some real estate in PA and finding out about a couple abandoned government owned properties... There's an entire village somewhere in Jersey that's abandoned I'm told...

    It's an old Nike missile site, IIRC. There was a fire at one of the launch pads (mid-to-late 60's I believe) and the missile was compromised. A small amount of nuclear material was exposed, and the firefighting efforts spread the contamination over the whole pad. The whole site was shut down, and it's still fenced off.
    I used to have a link to an informative page about this, but I seem to have misplaced it. But if you Google "Nike missile" you'll probably find it.

    Re: Anybody into exploring old complex\'s?

    Thats some pretty cool stuff. I can't believe how huge these complex's are, like small cities, even have their own power plants. I can't believe it is just rotting away and basically abandoned. I don't think there is anything like that around here /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    You can have your very own complex for just a "little" $$$$:

    Some pretty cool ones on there, and not as expensive as I thought.

    Re: Anybody into exploring old complex\'s?

    The one near Denver wouldn't be bad either, but the price has gone up.... it was only $280K a couple of years ago.

    How about that one in upstate N.Y.?
