Interesting what you can find when you look at your Flickr Stats.

I work within a half mile of these buildings and every once in a while we go there to visit.

About half of them are rented out, the other half are abandoned. The rented ones are of course the nicer of the batch, but I always avoid them. There is an old closed road that goes through the complex that gives a nice tour of the adandoned buildings.

If you guys what any more info, let me know.

Thx to everyone for the info. If you happen to walk by and see a # to call for info about renting grab ot for me. We plan on renting a single family home when we first get up there but that place is too cool for school. Is it in a decent area?

I saw that too! I have never been able to find a link for them. Do you have a link? I wouldn't mind going to see them.

I looked around for some links. Looks like the show is available on VHS on Amazon from their sellers. I would bet you could get it at a library through inter-library loan if your local branch didn't have it.

LOL. Sorry! I meant a link to the Sauer Castle in Aspinwall. I saw the program, it was great.

Well perhaps if you weren't "flaming" so much it wouldn't have happened! (Sorry, I just couldn't resist the punch line!) In all seriousness though, is everything okay? Anyone injured? Any property damage?
