#1 Eerily Beautiful Abandoned Place in the World
I drive past this whenever I go into Detroit. It's the Michigan Central Station.
Condé Nast Magazine rates it the #1 eerily beautiful abandoned place in the world.
"This hulking Beaux-Arts train station was the tallest train station in the world at the time of its construction in 1912. It was designed by Warren & Wetmore and Reed and Stem—the same architects behind New York's Grand Central Terminal—but has been abandoned since 1988."
There's always talk going on about restoring it.
