    Every city has it's abandoned buildings. What is your city's most fascinating abandoned building?

    Albuquerque, New Mexico has it's famous Old Railyard. Abandoned since the late 1980s, the 100 year old steel and glass building complex has become a Hollywood favorite for filming. In the last five years, over a dozen huge movies have filmed there These include Terminator: Salvation, In Plain Sight, Breaking Bad, Gamer, Crash, Transformers 1 & 2 and Avengers.

    There is a building that we locals know as "the Castle." It is a structure used as a Tennessee State Prison for many years. The appearance of the building (it looks like a castle), gives it is name. I was an "extra" in the movie "The Last Castle" that was filmed there. It was a lot of fun working as an extra, on the set, of The Last Castle. There are many other abandoned buildings in the city of my birth, Nashville, Tennessee, and in the town that I grew up in, Franklin, Tennessee. These two locations are major sites of tourism in Tennessee, places where historical building are common place. Thanks for asking a great question.

    Until recently I lived in Bristol, England, and near the center of town there is a building called the carriage house. It is falling apart and covered in graffiti - though some of the graffiti is quite good, a common thing in Bristol. Nonetheless, it is a landmark and loved by many of the locals. It has a giant, colorful skull painted on the third floor which can be seen from quite a distance.

      That's awesome! The Old Railyard is covered with graffiti and street murals too. Some are very impressive actually.
