Abandoned Towns

Nothing is cooler than an abandoned city. Here's a set of 24 from the WebUrbanist folks. Not a lot of detail on these, but interesting ideas.

After neglecting this blog for a while, the ghost town theme seemed appropriate. Most of my posts are at open_design or at KoboldQuarterly.com these days.

About 40 minutes from where i grew up, and the reason why i flinch whenever i go past the town south of Olympia: Centralia, PA

It's also #1 on WebUrbanist's list here, where you can find more links about Centralia. I have, to my recollection, been thru' it exactly once. (It's entirely possible i've been thru' it more because my father's family is from the Coal Region, but if i was i was too young to remember.) It was very spooky, with houses boarded up and numbered for demolition. A few months after i passed thru' the state highway i'd driven on was re-routed to go around the town and the fire.

I wonder how long it will burn. Lot of coal out there.
