    BCT, Kirkbrides, and Abandoned Things

    I had a chance to go down to Buffalo this past weekend for a gathering of urban explorers and had an absolute blast down in the city. Some of the famous places I got to see were the Richardson Complex at the Buffalo Psychiatric Hospital (only from the outside since it was broad daylight and state police were crawling over the campus), and the Buffalo Central Terminal, the Diocesan Educational Campus, and the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium or simply "The Aud" Anyways enough with the talk, on with the photos!

    Nice work - I'd love to do some of this myself. The Keweenaw Peninsula in Michigan's UP has a ton of old mining relics all over the place, but it's probably a very long drive for you - as it is for me...

    Glad to see someone is working on the Buffalo terminal. I see that the pop machine is plugged in so they have electricity in there. "The Aud" which I'm not familiar with apparently sealed it's fate by putting Michelob in the International Beer Garden...

    I've never heard of those places, but what a great photo op! The textures on the wall alone would be worth it. Thanks for sharing...and great pics!

    Cool shots. Love this kind of stuff...

    Never had a chance to check out these places when I lived in Buffalo, although I did see Peter Framton and J. Geils Band at the Aud.
