Abandoned Block in Middletown
I've always admired this abandoned retail store building in Middletown, and decided it was high time to document it.
But then I realized that the house behind it was also empty, abandoned, and in disrepair. So, I trudged onward to take some photos of it also...
...and only then did it dawn on me that the house next door to it was yet another abandoned one! What the heck's going on around here?
Then I saw this sign by the road, in front of the whole area. Arghhhh. Well, that's just great. More cool old buildings destroyed to make from for crappy cookie-cutter modern ugly strip-mall retail space that will probably sit empty and unrented for some time to come... just like the unwanted shopping center that was built where John Riley's Green Garage used to be.
