Old paper / box factory exploration [27 Feb 2007|12:13am]

A couple friends and I visited the old factory near Davis Square a couple weeks ago (props to being tipped off on the location by http://www.vanshnookenraggen.com/ )

I posted a photo-walk through in my journal:

We've gone back once since then and tried to go around to the other side, but found a bum sleeping under the freight train bridge next to us and turned back. At the back of the factory, there's a cool mini-roof with a hole in a fence that you can climb through if you're strong/skinny. Lots of barbed wire around that part though, so be careful.

Im from Worcester and would love to find some old abandoned buildings to take pictures. I was recently at an old abandoned farm(?) right next to westborough state hospital an recently checked out the now empty worcester common outlets. I have searched a lot of sites but found that a lot of the buildings they talk about have been ripped down. If anyone has any places i should visit please comment me bout them! i go back to college on the 28th an would love to take some more pics round here before im back in Dartmouth. Thanks

T Exploration [02 Aug 2006|01:54am]

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I've remembered seeing so many staircases going to nowhere while taking the subway and I was just wondering if you guys had any suggestions for exploring the T or anything else in the Downtown Boston area.

Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham [31 Jul 2006|06:30pm]

Has anyone been to the Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham very recently? I know they are demolishing it, but I don't know if they have started or what is left. Basically, I want to see if it's worth trecking to. :-)

Hello [06 Mar 2006|10:22pm]
Hi everyone, I just found this community, so if my question is misguided please just let me know. I'm a photo student who lives in Cambridge and I'm looking for some type of abandoned building/house (preferably a house actually) that I could shoot some photographs in. I haven't been in the area for too long so I don't exactly know where to start. I found the list of buildings that the city published and also the maps to those buildings, but it seems to be a bit of a stretch to check every one out until I get lucky. So I was hoping somebody here may have some advice as to some places to start or look at. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I found an entrance to Foxboro state hospital the other day, its pretty fucking sweet. On the side of the industrial building, near the gravel pile, theres a door. Its boarded, but the board is only being propped up by a sign. From the industrial building you can take a tunnel into the main building.

Just watch out, security patrols around there pretty often, I think hourly or something. And theyre tough about finding people there, but its definately a cool visit.
