Abandoned buildings always make me sad. I always think about how much life was lived in them and then how they're just boarded up and empty now. I've been around a few closed military bases where the base housing is just boarded up and the streets are cracked with grass poking through and it just makes you think about how many kids used to run around there and play and all the families that lived there.

Yea Bethelem steel is about 5 minutes down the road from me, and the psych center is about 15 minutes from me... A couple of years ago me and some friends went exploring in the psych center on halloween, what a scare that was, Now the place is a home to crackheads and junkies..
I've always found abondoned buildings from the mid eighteen hundreds / early nineteen hundreds interesting, albiet creepy.
Take a look at "Hospital X" for example.
Where I live there a couple of abandoned houses. A while back, some friends and I decided that we were going to bust in and see what it's like. I've walked through grave yards at night, slept in a tent near an indian burial ground (which is freaky, because sometimes you hear these drum like noises beating) but this whole abandoned house thing freaked the hell out of me. Eventually I want to visit the old Mansfield Reformatory, in Mansfield Ohio. Reportedly that thing is a hot bed for ghost like activity. Shawshank Redemption was filmed there, and from what some of the crew members say, it get's wicked freaky there at night.
