New York, including the famous Buffalo Central Terminal.
An exhaustive site covering St. Louis's built environment
in beautiful detail. Tons of photos and information
on one of the most beautiful city's in the world.
A great urban exploration site based in St.
Louis. This site offers many wonderful photos of
a wide variety of sites ranging from a meat packing
plant to a giant hospital.

I find this one of the most disturbing. This beautifully
designed site offers many great photos of the
northern portion of the German provence of East
Prussia, under Soviet/Russian occupation since
1945. Many beautiful ruins of old castles, churches
and farms in and about Konigsberg and the surrounding
towns. Socialism only destroys!!!
A facinating look at the Big Apple. History is all
The definative resource for urban exploration.
