Back in 2010, I traveled to Rochester, Buffalo, and Detroit on my own to do some exploring. It was the first and until now the only time that I've ever gone and explored so many things on my own. It was amazing. Now, 6 years later and around the same time, I went to Philly on a whim (super early might I add) and ventured into what I believe is the largest single abandoned building I've ever been to (yes, even bigger than Kings Park Psychiatry in Long Island). But first, let me tell you about another place.
I originally wanted to go see the abandoned Spring Garden School but when that didn't play out quite as planned I didn't want to waste the trip so I just played it by ear...and found myself here at N 12th Street and N Toronto Street at what I can only describe as a former abandoned factory of some sort. It was near some train tracks and I initially just wanted to see some trains but ended up climbing a concrete wall to get into this place.
It was a bit dark inside but streams of light coming through lit the place beautifully. It's been so long since I've gone into an abandoned concrete building and it felt so good to be back. This unnamed place was a surprise since I didn't really plan on going in and I'm really glad I did. Also, I saw a fox here and it scared the hell out of me.
