Abandoned Sussex Camp, NJ

Aug. 16th, 2015 | 05:30 pm
posted by: petrona in abandonedplaces

Camp Sussex originally opened up in 1924 and served its purpose as a non-profit camp for city children in poverty. The location which closed in 2005 now sits as an abandoned summer camp.
Among the tens of thousands who benefitted from Camp Sussex were some famous folks, the most famous likely being Mel Brooks. The famous filmmaker and comic writer recalled his days at Camp Sussex--and how they shaped his future life--in a February 1975 interview.

Discussing his young life, the interviewer asks Brooks "When did you find out that you could be funny?" Brooks replied, "I've always been funny. But the first time I remember was at Sussex Camp for Underprivileged Jewish children. I was seven years old and whatever the counselors said I would turn it around. 'Put your plates in the garbage and stack the scraps, boys!' 'Stay at the shallow end until you learn to drown!'"

Brooks (original name: Melvin Kaminsky) recalled that such jokes got him in hot water with the camp staff, "But the other kids liked it and I was a success." As a short, scrawny, un-athletic kid, he learned to used words and humor: "they were afraid of my tongue . . . words were my equalizer." So if you've ever laughed at "The Producers," "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein," Camp Sussex gets a little bit of the credit.

The beautiful Art Nouveau building overlooking the sea from Legino, Savona, has been completely abandoned since 1998, when it partially collapsed and had to be closed down. Villa Zanelli was likely designed by architect Gottardo Gussoni, from Turin, and inaugurated in 1907.

Antiquity Echoes - The Book

Aug. 11th, 2015 | 01:03 pm
mood: accomplishedaccomplished
posted by: dark_fetus in abandonedplaces

I want to preface this post by saying that I hope I'm not coming across as simply making a plug for our upcoming book. When I mentioned it in my last post here, people seemed very interested in knowing more about the book, and the upcoming release. If this goes against any community guidelines, I'm genuinely sorry. I love you guys, and don't want to do anything wrong here...

Anyway, as some here may already be aware - over the past year Christina and I have been working very hard on the creation of a coffee-table book with Skyhorse Publishing. This week the fruits of those labors have finally begun to arrive back from the printer, and are being prepped for sale. Titled "Antiquity Echoes" (the same as our website), the book contains a collection of stories about abandoned locations that run the gambit from overgrown asylums to decaying malls. You will not find ghost stories within, what we provide instead is an insightful celebration of the ephemeral beauty which can only be found in places left forgotten.

Furthermore, we really wanted to do something different with the opportunity Skyhorse had given us, so we went about integrating original videos into the book. At the end of most chapters you will find a QR code, when scanned with your smartphone or tablet, it will play a short cinematic film of the location which you just read about. Music for these videos was supplied by Worrytrain, an artist who we have long been fans of. The haunting soundtrack they provided was far more than we ever hoped for, and gives the entire book an air of dark mystery. We are beyond proud of what the end result is, and we hope everyone enjoys what we were able to create. The book will be on sale in book stores nationally beginning September 15th, however pre-orders are currently available on Amazon.

Two abandoned DDR era Soviet Bases. The first one is the Fliegerschule Altes Lager, opened in 1916, during the first world war, as an airship station. In 1933 the Nazis converted the now disused base into a secret airbase with the codename "Waldlager". After the second world war the base became a soviet airbase until 1994 when it was handed back to Germany and abandoned.

Condorcet - old abandoned village in south France

Jul. 27th, 2015 | 07:26 pm
posted by: ys_melmoth in abandonedplaces

The village of Condorcet was first built on a hill, around a defensive castle. In the 16th century, the place became property of the family of Caritat, ancestors of the philosopher and mathematician Nicolas de Condorcet.
In 19th century, because of the lack of water and isolation of the place, the inhabitants slowly abandoned the village to build another one, along the river, using the stones of the ancient houses. Just a few walls remain now on the hill above the vineyards.
