Site: Abandoned NJ

Abandoned NJ as found on BackwardsCity Blog. The entry Beyond the Palace hemi-powered drones scream down the boulevard talks about tearing down The Palace in Asbury Park, NJ.

I rememer spending a month as a boy in '76 in Ocean Grove. I spent many hours in the arcades of Asbury Park. Many year later we went back to the beach in Deal, or in Ocean Grove. These two towns sandwich Asbury Park. It was very sad to see how decayed Asbury Park became. Especally when Ocean Grove and the very affulent Deal stayed in great shape. It is amazing that towns so close together, connected by boardwalk, can be so different.

Ah.... Abandoned NJ. Good site.

If you haven't stumbled across it yet, take a look at infiltration. Good stuff.

A bit closer to home, there's subciety. There's quite a bit of exploration of the cast behinds of modern society. It's pretty interesting (at least, to me :-) )
