Urban Exploring Detroit v. Prison

Welcome to the Detroit House of Corrections. My girlfriend and I both got MDOP (I used my bolt cutters to get rid of the bike chains that they used to mend the old holes in the three perimeter fences) and trespassing tickets here.

Open from 1922 to 1986. During prohibition many bootleggers were incarcerated here.

So how many of these urban exploring things do you do and find that the place has been gutted for scrap metal?

Looks like it's just about ready for prisoners finally...still in decent shape though. Maybe in another 30 years?

Did you see my thread about the psychiatric hospital I went to that I posted a few weeks back? If not here it is http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...780&highlight=

I'm going to an abandoned Nike missile defense site tomorrow. If I get enough interest I'll post pics of that trip some time too. DMC was supposed to come with me but his time in the Detroit area was limited and couldn't make the trip. Too bad. Maybe next time.

Almost 95% in the city of Detroit are completely raped of all the copper or aluminum. There are a few places that have been left alone, and even have the original contents left. One is a hospital that I'm planning on going to very soon. All the medical equipment is still there but that's because it's a high risk venue with regular patrols.

This prison is in a rural township called Plymouth. It has a 24/7 guard and three perimeter fences all equipped with razor wire down the inside of the fence. No way scrappers could get in here.

Since it's closure they've been talking about tearing these places down and putting something in that would draw positive attention to the city. From upscale condos to an outdoor mall. They have all just been plans though. Nothing serious.

The other place I'm talking about is right across the street and is another prison that was recently closed. Go figure. Two abandoned prisons at the same intersection.

Ehh. A little bit. From what I've gathered minimal exposure to asbestos won't cause mesothelioma. Most of the places I explore don't have windows so it's ventilated enough that it's not really a factor. We recently bought respirators that have P100 filters for asbestos, different harmful molds, and just all around dirty air.

But as far as the asbestos.. I smoke so I'm probably ****ed either way, so no. It's not a really worry of mine. But my girlfriend who takes these pictures.. she worries about everything lol

The government should use tax money on your education. Don't criticize anything if you can't speak proper English.


My tax money says that you probably don't even pay taxes yet.

All that paint was probably lead based. You're doomed.

Seriously. There is barely any tax money going into this place, if any. It might all be private funding for anyone knows. The only money going into this place is a security guard making minimum wage (we had a nice long talk with him while the cops took 45 minutes to show up to write our tickets) and the people who occasionally come to cut the lawn.
