Me - Headshot

Abandoned Places – Main Street, Old Louisville - Part 1 of 2

Here’s another gem from the past I’d forgotten about. Several years ago, while visiting family in the area, I took my daughter to explore a series of buildings in downtown Louisville I was surprised to see derelict. They were only a few blocks away from the YUM Center (Basketball arena) and in an area that had been full of clubs.

old bridge

I'm not sure if this is an abandoned place technically. I ride my bike to work along a river, which is bounded on both sides by a variety of industrial workshops and factories, an inhabited by a number of ducks and geese who I'm sure have a variety of chemical pollutants in their bloodstreams. Every day, I see this random old bridge, which (for obvious reasons) is no longer in use. Because of all the private property, I can't get to the other side of the river to try and climb the structure (and honestly I'm not sure if I would even if I could, as the river's not deep and I'm fairly certain I'd fall through.)
