I love abandoned places.  I am huge fan of the photographer behind Abandoned America.  There are so many reason abandoned places are attractive and by his nearly 70,000 followers, I am not alone in my thoughts.

These buildings have history and stories, just like we do.  Though abandoned and thought to be of no use, someone is finding beauty in the rubble, just like us.

As Christmas approaches with 10 days of no school, you might want visit some locally abandoned places. It’s free and you can do it as a family!  You can also check out Abandoned Hudson Valley for a variety of super cool places.  Most of them are open, but it’s always wise to double check before embarking on your adventure.

Abandoned places also offers up a not-so-subtle hint about where we will be photographing AND filming some pretty cool projects with teenagers in 2018.   Until then, scroll away and enjoy!
