Another time, Highlander

The biggest problem with shooting ruins is that the best dumps are almost always in the shittiest neighborhoods.

Pitcher Street Blues

This is Pitcher Street in Kalamazoo. Once a bustling industrial section, it is slowly giving way to taggers and decay. The closing of Checker left a rotting carcass behind. The east side of the street is a wasteland; the west slowly withers, given over to the relentless taggers, artists and imbecilic juggalos. It's just a question of who is stronger. the businesses hanging on, or entropy, atrophy and anarchy.

They Don't Build Them Like That Anymore

Checker MarathonThis is a Checker Marathon.  Below is what remains of their whelping grounds.

at a beat upgarage full of old school stuff, desks and such.

Parts is parts

This building is outside the fences at the former Checker plant.  We don't know whether it is part of the plant, or some remora-like parts supplier with a prime location. Either way, enjoy the carcass.

Yes there really is

a Kalamazoo.  Here are some night shots.
