perfect example of Urban Decay in America known as Detroit's abandoned
train station. A.K.A. Michigan Central Station. Michigan
Central Station once was a thriving epicenter for the city of
Detroit and the whole Midwest. Now the abandoned train station
sits with most of it's windows broken.
architecture of the building is beautiful and definitely deserves
to be saved.
you can see from our photos- Restoration would be quite a task.
Most of the interior has fallen victim to 'urban miners' who break
in to steal any stone accents, wire and even copper tubing and
bricks to sell as scrap. The removal of these materials causes
extensive damage throughout, resulting in the interior being completely
destroyed. Urban guerrilla artists have taken advantage of the
vacant wall space.
the current owner of the Michigan Central Station has the same
enthusiasm for the fantastic building. Judging from some old assed articles they were planning to restore the Train Station.
