These Photos Reveal The Hidden Beauty In Abandoned America | Real Estate | Scoop.it

There were 160 acres of decay, including 40-odd buildings and a bunch of underground tunnels. He became hooked. "I started looking for other places that I could go to, and that branched out to power plants, hospitals, schools, churches," he says.
