Fabulous Ruins Table of Contents
Michigan Central Railroad Station Gateway to immigrants and visitors to Detroit for decades, Michigan Central Railroad Station saw millions of people pass through its doors. Now a massive ruin of eerie proportions it houses a single visitor. Partially visible in the right door, a local wino has taken refuge from the misting rain with his bottle of wine.
Massive abandoned train station in Detroit. Even at the height of rail in the 1930s, when this building was completed, the top four floors were never occupied. Now the entire building is abandoned, which is too bad because it is so grand and elegant...but Detroit is a lost city of many beautiful abandoned buildings.
