Metro Health, Highland Hills
I drove up into this Metro Health something-care facility on Richmond Rd. in Highland Hills this week and saw an interesting building:
Not the best pic, I know, but I was driing a company vehicle

I got a little closer and saw that windows were hanging open, and it was seriously overgrown, so it looked abandoned. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. It's right next to Tri-C East, and I think it used to be the TB hospital, but I'm not sure.

Randall Park Mall is camera shy!
Randall Park MallCollapse )

Why is Randall Park Mall against people taking pictures there?

Here's why I ask:

Mall haet camera.Collapse )

So that brings to mind a few questions: Is their any legislature anywhere that protects photographer's rights within a publicly-accessible private location? Is their anything I could've done to at least been able to finish my shopping (remember that I didn't know I was doing anything supposedly "wrong" until I was stopped, and I was immediately asked to leave without her even allowing me to explain myself.)? Why would Randall Park be concerned with picture-taking in the first place?

(sorry if you've seen this before, I've x-posted to a number of communities as I feel that even if nobody can answer my question, the word needs to be gotten out that Randall Park Mall is NOT ok with photography!)

Abandoned Hotel in North Randall
Last night, a friend and I attempted to get into the old abandoned hotel by the Wendy's in North Randall (it sits in an outlot of Randall Park Mall). But alas, we were foiled, as the place seems to be an impenetrable fortress. The only thoughts we had were to bring a rope with us so we could climb to the low roof over the walkway that connected to the pool room and from there possibly get in a second-story room window (many of the room windows seemed to be open for whatever reason).

It's the building centered in this map.

Any ideas on how to get in? Any of you been? Next time I go I'll at least take some pictures through the windows ^_^

Jaite Paper Mill
I just got a message from the deputy superintendant of the park:

The work that is taking place is the first phase of the site
restoration of the Jaite Mill site. That work is primarily removal of all the above ground structures.

I have attached the scope of work that is ongoing.

Long term efforts, which are not funded, will require an
environmental assessment to determine how much of the fill material will be removed. Conceptually we would like to develop a trail along the rail bed,
acrossthe river and connect to the Buckeye and Jaite. There is no funding
for this.

He also attached a 13-page document that detailed all their plans and work. I copied some highlights, and put them behind a cut for those interested.

Jaite Paper Mill
I sent the Cuyahoga Valley Nat'l Park an email asking what was going on at the site. When I find out, I'll let everyone know.

Intro Post
Hey all, n00b here. I've been interested in urban ex since I discovered the Forgotten Ohio site about 2 years ago. Still havn't actually gotten into any place, from a combination of not wanting to go alone and not knowing much about the areas I've wanted to explore. Fear of getting caught and thrown in jail isn't cool when all you want to do is have a look around! I did scout out the Tecumseh Building in Springfield with some friends once, but it was broad daylight so we didn't do much more than walk around it wondering how such a seemingly valuable piece of real estate could go unused.

Quick question, has anyone ever been inside the building in the center ofthis map? It's an old Christian Science church. It's really close to where I live, and it's such a beautiful building...

now, it's not quite abandoned, but it's crazy to explore, and no one watches if you wander to the unused levels 5+

norton furniture.
it's magical in there.

More from Franklin Castle
I was at Franklin Castle on Saturday for my friend's Halloween party.  I got to roam around the place a lot more and take many more pictures.  I didn't manage to take any pics on the fourth floor, but there's more pics of the first three floors and the ground.  Feel free to check them out. They are in the "10-29-05 Franklin Castle" folder on my Yahoo pictures page: http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/hearsegirl66/my_photos

new to the group / Franklin Castle

Hey everyone, I'm sort of new to the group so I wanted to say hi.  I haven't done too much exploring in the Cleveland/Akron area yet, but I thought some of you might be interested to see where I went a few weeks ago.  A friend of mine is currently renovating the Franklin Castle, so I didn't have to break in, but this place is still vacant and hasn't been lived in for years.  My camera's batteries died when I was on the first floor, but I'll be back there in a week or two to take more pics.  Here's a link to the rest of my pics.

well this place isnt from northeast ohio, but if any of you are interested, i went to michigan this past saturday to explore the abandoned ypsilanti psychiatric hospital.  its well worth the three hour drive.  you better hurry though if you want to see it before they tear it down and put up a walmart. 

you can see some of the 212 pictures i took here, on my photobucket album.

have i become that guy who posts too much?  oh well.  so in my first post i talked about this hotel.......

well we finally got in last night.  it was easy too.  lots of fun getting in but once you're inside its kind of boring.  not very abandoned looking.  it must have been going through a renovation just before it was closed down.  theres nothing inside.  most of the walls are nice fresh drywall or just 2x4s.  we havent made it all the way through yet but my guess is that its all the same.  ohh well.  its still exploring.  i wish i had pictures of the inside to show everyone but i forgot my camera in my car.  i'll see if i can steal some from my girlfriend.
on saturday we got into one of the cleveland areas most infamous buildings.  the mother of all abandoned buildings.  you should all know what im talking about.  sorry i dont have more pictures but flash photography isnt a good idea in this place.
