Pratt-Pullman Railyard | Asylum Green

The abandoned Pratt-Pullman railyard in Atlanta, Georgia wasn’t originally part of our adventure plan when we initially hit the road heading south, but we took a few extra moments to stop and shoot the medium-sized complex. Shooting a new abandoned building that you’re not familiar with can be a bit daunting, however, the internet and…

Sneaking Suspicions | Asylum Green

Jet Blue knows that I love to travel, especially in the dead of winter.  This year their winter sale presented the opportunity to fly to Tennessee for only $96! Needless to say, myself and two friends headed south for a 5-day trip to see as many abandoned gems as we could. We started our trip in…

Record From The Past | Asylum Green

I was recently digging through an old organizer and was fortunate enough to find the login for my old photobuckets. After diving in, I found some photos from places that I never thought I’d see again. Combing through photos, I found this from a totally impulsive trip to Baltimore. Before venturing south, at 18, I’d…

No H8 | Asylum Green

Over the years I’ve encountered many people in a variety of abandoned buildings; scrappers, high school students, drug addicts, homeless, geo trackers, photographers, art students, families*, but most interesting of all have been graffiti artists. It’s always a disappointment when a place you love gets covered in spray painted dicks, phone numbers and lewd comments….

Larger Than Life | Asylum Green

Detroit, a city of pride even in its demise. I’ve always wanted to see the Packard Plant, even knowing it’s just skin and bones of what once was a huge automotive empire. Scrappers, fires, and developers have all contributed to the demise of the Packard Plant, though recently the crumbling complex has a glimpse of…

Relapse General | Asylum Green

It’s no secret that I am on the road almost 24/7 searching for something to point my camera at. Rarely, though, do I get to return to location that I truly enjoyed. In December of 2011 I ventured to Western Pennsylvania to visit this general hospital and a few others locations. This May I was…

Train Repair Factory | Asylum Green

Growing Up Near An Abandoned Factory Is something that some people choose to look back on negatively, but I think of fondly. Iron Horse Train Repair Factory was an easy after school stop when I was child. The factory was like the eighth world wonder when I first discovered it. More than ten years later,…

Train Line Power Station | Asylum Green

As our country moves away from producing good and focuses more on providing services, factories close their doors, cities loose their income, infrastructures fail and eventually there becomes copious abandoned buildings to explore. Other times, cities still flourish and urban sprawl has high rise towers housing citizens next to a train station, which is also…

Family Friendly Psych Center | Asylum Green

Early in my exploring days, (aka the days of forums, text messaging on flip phones and other pre-historic technology, you youngins) I discovered Kings Park Psychiatric Center. The campus from aerial maps was sprawling, including an amazing tower that I immediately needed to see.   At one time, King Park had over 100 buildings. I…

Handcuffs at Titicut | Asylum Green

Everyone has that one friend who takes things to a totally insane level. At some point in my life I met that friend and he became my go-to dude when I want to do anything high risk. I have done a lot of things that have made my stomach turn with anxiety- traversed collapsing floors,…

Burning Caskets | Asylum Green

While thumbing through my Instagram feed a few months back I noticed photos of an abandoned hospital on fire. Never a good post to see. Upon further inspection I realized Middletown Psychiatric Center, located in central New York was about to see its final moments. I’d visited Middletown many times, it was a perfect stopping…

Autopsy For Dinner | Asylum Green

Our nations capitol city is a wonderful but terrible place, all at the same time. Middle school trips and the American Dream all visit D.C., but if you leave the patriotic downtown area, you see the issues that are plaguing this country. Sitting in D.C., away from the hub-bub of ‘MERICA is a huge abandoned…
