Latly I have been interested in downtown, and the so called "Downtown Dirty Dozen" buildings. Despite improving conditions downtown, this is still probably the only place I can think of with towering skyscrapers completly empty and in ruins. This is the Broderick Tower, A.K.A the "Abandoned Tower". There is a rumored "loft" rennovation for this place, but so far the only work going on inside in vandalism. Something about having an entire roaring 1920's neo-classical skyscraper all to yourself that is just surreal. A grim reminder of just how boring and bland modern buildings look. Once you get inside, the first few floors are dark. The windows painted over, perhaps to hide the fact that this is a lifeless building. Some hallway shots. Once home to many different businesses, including dentists, doctors, tailors, and laywers. Stepping into this place is like stepping back in history. Looking out the window. Someone ripped a nice hole in that add that faces Corporate America ballpark. Nice shot down Woodward Ave. The top of the Metropolitian building, another beautifully built delapitated building. Complete with trees growing on the roof somehow. That's not me in the mirror. The doors. Where is Jim Morrison? Here are just some bizzare random things I found in this place. A wheelechair. Old fridge. Dentist chairs from probably the 1940's, maybe even earlier. Stuffed Monkey with it's head torn off. Looks like something out of a movie. whoaa, I'm artsey The roof is the best part. The uppers floors 34-36 used to be a personal penthouse club for elite businessmen. Now it's a penthouse for hobos and vandals. No booze left at the bar. I checked. I had free Tiger tickets all summer. Best Seat in the House (I whored this one out in Photoshop). I still hate this ballpark. I miss Tiger Stadium. This place is the real deal. Excellent view. And last but not least. You saw how trashed this place is. That didn't stop someone from placing a garbage bag on the roof so us explorers could put our garbage! That's it. I have a bunch more, but I think this is enough.
