I have just come across this, [link] Now 1 of 2 things will happen if this kicks off ad gets popular. 1. Everything will be nice and you will be able to urbex more easily. 2. The publicity of the site will force the demolition/police patrol/blocking off of the sites in question. But if you live near any of the sites it's possible worth a try.
I just find the places through different ways ... google, people telling me about abandoned places, old people talking about the good old times and how the city changed are a good source too well for the industrial .. i'm blessed with luck because i come from an industrial area and it is really hard to not find some abandoned factories
but it's really interesting because I found my abandoned house on google maps. The problem is that viewed from above, it seems to be a normal house. How to make the difference and not coming at people's house and being very disappointed?
