    Just finished a movie called "tooth and nail" part of Lionsgate 8 films to die for - after dark horrorfest...

    Decent movie. Pretty much the entire thing filmed in an abandoned philly hospital and an abandoned philly power plant.

    Check it out.

    The power plant made that entire movie worth it.

    Just watched robocop for the first time and noticed the final battle scene takes place at the former Duquesne Steel Mill in East Pittsburgh.

    Only a few remnants and foundations of the mill remain. The last of the major structures were torn down in 2006.

    Wow.
    I wonder how many wayward explorers met their end by falling into a boiling vat of liquid toxico?

    Finally got a chance to see "Crazy Eights" this weekend. Not the best movie but great footage of some not so popular local abandonments. Pretty much the entire movie is filmed in an old hospital.

    So I'm not sure if this totally counts since the movie was FILMED at the abandonment but rather, the abandonment serves as an important device in the plot.

    Portsmouth Naval Prison


    From wikipedia:
    "In the 1973 movie The Last Detail, Seaman Larry Meadows (Randy Quaid) is escorted by petty officers Billy "Badass" Buddusky (Jack Nicholson) and Mule Mulhall (Otis Young) to the Portsmouth Naval Prison. Meadows has been sentenced to 8 years confinement for trying to steal $40 from a charity box. But because of his harsh sentence, the guards feel sorry for Meadows. They decide to show the naive sailor the time of his life before arriving on Seavey's Island (where another location substitutes for the actual brig)."

    I've been dreaming about this location since I was a little kid growing up in the area. If you're thinking about it I should warn you, it is on an island that contains an active naval base where they build and repair nuclear subs. Also, it is surrounded by one of the strongest natural currents in the world. Good luck.

    Also,


    I just explored this yesterday. I was told Disney just filmed "Confessions of a Shopaholic" at this factory.

    Freedomland was filmed @ The Farm Colony in Staten Island.

    Also, The ending scene of " Jacob's Ladder " was filmed at the Children's Ward's.

    Okay here's one-- and not so much from the "drama" side of the house-- Kate & Leopold (2001).. bear with me I know it's a chick flick...
    In the midst of a friday evening lounge-- their strolling out of a "filming lot" which well, sure as hell looked like abandoned dusted off to play in... am I wrong? It's driving me nuts.
    What's worse is I'd hate to put anyone through watching it to see if they recognize... haha

    Anyone know the specific episode that was in? I see McNulty and Greggs. I want to say season 3 which might coincide with the year 2004.

    They used the set as a homeless shelter/soup kitchen. I'm pretty sure it was 2 or 3, but I dont remember which episode.

    That is what I was thinking because it looks like you can just make out the nose of Bubbles there on the right. Plus it looks like that lady is holding a plate.

    I really need to go back and watch all of the episodes again. I bought all the DVDs but lent them out to people.

    The 1st episode of the 4th season has the alley and the kids catching the pidgeon. Lebow seems to mostly be in the 4th seasons. The drug corner that Bodie was working on is about 2 blocks away at Lanvale and Barclay. And the school is right across the street on Guilford.
