Abandoned sets from HBO's The Wire...

These are two buildings that were used in HBO's The Wire. Both debuted in the 2nd season and may have been used a little here and there in other seasons...







This was the makeshift headquarters for "The Detail" in season 2. All the police involved with investigating the port thefts/hooker murders etc worked out of here. You would see shots of the outside and I can only assume the interior shots were actually shot here as well...


This is Little Johnny's, the place where Vondas and The Greek always hung out. This was actually recently abandoned, last time I drove by it appeared to be in working order although it was grungy...








Older pictures of these places...












And for a bonus here is the abandoned Fox 45 studio which I believe was used in part of the original John Water's Hairspray...
