Built St. Louis
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.
Sonic Atrophy
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.

Not really intended as a UE or ruins site, however 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!!!

The definative resource for urban exploration. Includes a wide variety of sites and stories and a UE forum.

Built Kalamazoo
