A lazy Sunday evening, relaxing and playing, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” A global/local lyric structure here - look at the world and see nothing but aging, but also, floor needs to be swept!

The goal was to visit Allentown, PA, but Bethlehem stole the show. Since the demise of Bethlehem steel, Bethlehem has embraced its role as the Christmas City and its historic district remains alive and well. #bethlehempa #bethlehemsteel #pa #pennsylvania #lehighvalley #historicdistrict #rustbelt #cities
Another trusty Cleveland workhorse, at least until it finishes rusting away to nothing #ohiorustlife

Work brought me home last week to Buffalo, NY. I had some downtime to cruise around and do some exploring. I grew up after Buffalo’s hay day. The manufacturing jobs and industry have all left. Once the richest city in America is now one of the countries poorest. Today you’ll find the vacant remains of Buffalo’s storied past. Entire blocks abandoned. Factories once bustling now lay vacant and silent. It’s very apocalyptic to see. I’ve always been fascinated about my hometowns history and storied past. I love the architecture, the infrastructure and the the amazing stories of what once was. I call this one “Pray For Buffalo”. | #ShotByBP #UWasntThere #igersbuffalo #BuffaloNY #VSCO #RustBelt #UrbanExploration #abandonedplaces #abandoned_junkies #abandonedbuilding #BandoChasers #UrbexWorld #Urbex_Rebels #Urbex_Supreme #Decay_Nation #IG_Urbex #abandoned_seekers #all_is_abandoned #decay_nation #ig_abandoned #risebflo #iLoveNY #hashtagstepoutbuffalo #capturebuffalo #risebflo #NewYork #Upstate #ThisIsUpstate

It's 31 degrees and I just had to wash my truck. I can't stand winter. I can't stand salt. But most importantly I can't stand a dirty truck. #whitepaintprobs #chevysilverado #rustbelt #chevrolet #bowtie #fuckwinter #frozen

Kids did great at Regionals yesterday, although I was admittedly too chicken to watch. Anne going on to Divisionals. #bouldering #rustbelt
Remember the days when you traveled into the downtowns of the Rust Belt to visit Santa at the big department stores? Stellar idea & job are the only words that come to mind here. Shopping, eating, skating, Santa-ing & warming up in igloos..yes! Building community. That’s what it’s all about. Wouldn’t it be great to support our businesses, cities, & communities again? If there was a rust belt revitalization award, this would be my pick of the year. I observed entire demeanors changing today—from the families that came here as well as from city neighbors & passerby’s. #rochesterholidayvillage #rocholidayvillage #bringsantaback #rochesterny #rustbelt #revitalizeyourcity #urbanrevitalization #buylocal

Driving back home today, I’d like to thank the good folks of Lakewood NY-Warren Pennsylvania for a successful weekend of shows and have a very Merry Christmas! #abandoned #rustbelt #discovery #soulsearching #travel #traveling #seetheworld #undiscovered #MickHayesMusic #lovevery1 #buffalorust #metime #adventuretime #stride #journey #exploration #oxidized #offlimits #urbanexploration
Yesterday Luca competed in Regionals for bouldering, and while he didn’t move on to divisionals (we knew that was highly unlikely) - we are so incredibly proud of him for simply *trying*. Luca hasn’t always had the greatest self confidence in the world, and the fact that he still put himself out there to fall and fail speaks volumes of the kind of kid he is. At the end of the day, on the car ride home, he said to me that he is proud of himself for going out there and trying and that not many others would do that. He’s only been climbing since September. He is going to be amazing someday, and to us, he already is. #bouldering #rustbelt #rustbeltregionals #ascend #ateam

December 9, 1889. 129 years ago. The Auditorium Building in Chicago is dedicated by President Benjamin Harrison. The land was incorporated by the Chicago Auditorium Association in December 1886 by Ferdinand Peck who wanted to develop the world's largest, grandest, most expensive theatre to rival ones in London, Paris, and New York. After getting several Chicago buisnessman onboard including Marshal Field, Edson Keith, Martin A. Ryerson, Charles Hutchinson and George Pullman, construction began when Democratic President Grover Cleveland laid the cornerstone to the building on October.5/1887. The following year, the 1888 Republican National Convention was held in the partically completed building where Harrison became the Republican candidate. The building was used in the first quarter of the 20th century quite frequently but fell into disrepair during the Great Depression. In 1975, the auditorium was declared a National Historic landmark and was fully restored in 2001. The auditorium remains in use today. #auditorium #auditoriumbuilding #chicago #chicagoillinois #illinois #rustbelt #grovercleveland #cleveland #harrison #benjaminharrison #opera #1880s #1889
Who did it better? Chicken souvlakia. The top is Monroe, Wa and the bottom is Hamburg, NY. Buffalo has a lot of Ethnic Culture so this is kinda not fair but I will say the Top pic was more expensive. #civkensouvlakai #monroe #rustbelt #716 #buffalo #425 #whodiditbetter #foodie #fawn @bellabalduccis. I guess when you order chicken and get a rice plate you got to stick to the falafel it is my favorite.

Abandoned tin mine in China. . The mine is abandoned and not abandoned at the same time. After severe rain and floods it was stopped. But one worker is still there and paid, although he doesn't know if it will ever reopen. . . . #lostplaces #lostplace #abandoned #abandonedplaces #rottenplaces #rottenplace #rusted #china #tinmine #mine #mining #industry #abandonedindustry #rustbelt #travelgram #instatravel #urbex #urbexphotography #urbanexplorer #rural #verlasseneorte #verlasseneindustrie
Driving through a once-thriving city that too long ago reached its #Zenith — I’d love to see the city where my human dad was born, #GaryIndiana , rise like a #Phoenix from the #ashes to shine anew! [Although he enjoys the feeling of #nostalgia that this bit of #timeworn #signage triggers in him, I know he’d much rather it exist because someone into #vintage #commercial #advertising / #ads of #yesteryear purposely preserved it rather than because of #urbandecay .] #Gary #Indiana #RustBelt
New Release Series Zero: Hell With The Lid Taken Off Gazing upon the #IronCity in 1868, James Parton innocently observed the foundries and mills, billowing fire and brimstone, reminiscent of #HellWithTheLidTakenOff . This nickname proved haunting as #Pittsburgh has tried to rebuild itself from the scourge of #RustBelt depression. Now though, the #SteelCity is revitalizing and the nickname is more so a vital lesson about where we came from, and builds a foundation from which we can grow and move forward. See it in the flesh at #HandmadeArcade and online by Monday. ________________________________________ #PittsburghPA #SmithfieldStBridge #FireAndBrimstone #PittsburghBeautiful #412 #ShopSmall #MadeInUSA

Here are a pair of reshoots of old photos, taken with improved results, which go together fittingly. These are the last two steel mills in Allegheny County, the Edgar Thompson Plant in Braddock, PA, and the Clairton Works in Clairton, PA. Hopefully mine is the last generation that will be able to document these fossil fuel behemoths... #cleanenergy #solarenergy #windenergy #fossilfuels #pittsburgh #pennsylvania #braddock #clairton #steelcity #steelcitygrammers #pittsburghincline #monongahela #steel #coal #industrial #industry #rustbelt #industrialphotography #ozone

Fall 2018 | Cuyahoga Falls, OH | This is the third or fourth picture I’ve posted from this area, I think it’s a row of abandoned demo homes as in person they look unfinished and never lived in.
Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings at this new venue!
Took a little stroll around the industrial center of Cleveland. My dad spent 45yrs of his life working at LTV Steel to provide for us. This place is dangerous and beautiful, all at the same time. . . . . . . . #cleveland #rustbelt #midwest #respect #industrial #ltv

"He was up there longer than we were married." This underdog tale of ordinary men in an extraordinary circumstance is one of determination, hope, failure and triumph, along with a little bit of everything else: drugs, rock and roll, greed, adversity, hilarity, exploitation and the ever present pursuit of the American Dream.
