Ok I'll admit it. I have a problem. I can't drive by an old industrial NYC building without going inside and poking around to find awesome old stuff and taking photos from awesome rooftop views that really, everyone should be allowed to openly enjoy.

This place wasn't all that exciting. A lot of locked reinforced doors and not enough reprobates with me to pry them all open. This section of the building, however, was unlocked and inviting. Sure there wasn't too much to see but it's not hard to imagine the possibilities of such spaces.

And that's what exploring is: It's about going where you're not suppose to, and imagining what it was, and what it can be.
