Hey all, The recent entry about Coney Island actually reminded me of an abandoned amusement park I actually drove by last summer on the Leomonster/Lunenburg town line in Massachusetts. It's funny, because I've actually been to this place when it was open. I stayed there on an overnight trip with my cub scout troop back in 1993 (and it was half abandoned even then!) It was really creepy/cool staying overnight in an amusement park. Definitely a highlight of my childhood. I think it closed down for good sometime around 1999-2000. It looks like it would be pretty easy to get inside there, as the fences are kinda caving in, but I was in a hurry so I didn't stay nearly as long as I would have liked.
ok i went back to the abandoned Crawford Hall and found out it was a Dorm for college kids, though some of the sink were low to the ground and a few tubs were tinny. I suppose its possible it was used for more then just students. The last pic is my fav. I'm going to either draw it or paint it soon.
