100 Years

This might be my favorite building. The Michigan Central Station in Detroit , built in 1912-13 to serve as the city's main passenger depot. At time of construction it was apparently the world's tallest railway station- a strange distinction.


It's been abandoned since Amtrak left in January 1988. Various renovation plans have been proposed over the years but it still stands empty... deteriorating.
