Abundant Abandonment


These abandoned buildings showcase the beauty of craftsmanship and detail rarely seen in today’s architecture. Although empty and forgotten they offer a glimpse of the past frozen in time.



Top to bottom:
1. ORPHEUM AUDITORIUM – New Bedford, Massachusetts. This Auditorium opened on the same day that the Titanic sunk, April 15th, 1912. A supermarket now occupies some of the building, but the rest remains beautifully deserted.

2. CITY HALL STATION – City Hall, New York City, NY. Station was built in 1904 and closed in 1945 as only around 600 people used it only a daily basis.

3. UNDERWATER CITY – SHICHENG, CHINA. Shicheng has been underwater for 53 years since the Xin’an River Hydro Plant flooded the area. The city was founded 1,300 years ago.
