Junkies Auto Repair

August 1st, 2012 by

So I'm driving all over notfarNJ all day with a former felon, and we're on a spree. Every big abandoned building we see, we barge right into. This is the sort of broad daylight exploring blitz I live for.

Lately, I've been striving to include some more historic and adventural context to everything that gets posted on this site. This location though, is a clear exception. There's little known about it, and not a thread of information to use to research it. The front of the building appears to have been an auto garage just before it's untimely death. The rear contained massive fuel tanks, suggesting a former life as a small fuel depo.

At present time, it's a shithole. Squatters abound, the parts of the building that are not a burned out mess are filled with trash. Here lay the possessions of heroin addicted squatters, who have cobbled together piles of shoes, clothing and pure crap - strewn across the floor in random piles.

Completely unimpressed, we leave within minutes. There's absolute nothing to paint, or loot, and nothing that would clarify its past uses.

Welcome to the real, gritty Jersey. Home of pure shit locations such as this one.
