The Other Side of Cottage Home

Located northeast of the intersection of 10th and Massachusetts, it is literally on the other side of the Cottage Home neighborhood. This shows some examples of the warehouses that are intermixed with residential homes that Kevin mentioned in a comment about Cottage Home.

This is quite a large industrial complex; the interesting colors make it look less mundane and boxy.




The most dangerous shot of the day...Being butted up against a retaining wall that is taller than me while high speed traffic is whizzing by makes me nervous...


As luck would have it, a train just happen to come by when I was here...







There are many abandoned buildings like this along this stretch of Massachusetts and track; I intend on coming back and explore these some more.

I believe the area north of 10th Street technically the Windsor Park neighborhood. The colorful warehouse has some artist studios, I believe. It has to be one of the longest buildings in the city.

One of these picks would look sort of like and Old West town were it not for the tagging.

Kevin: Thanks for the name of the actual neighborhood...And the link, which will definitely come in handy! I can't think of any other buildings that are longer than this one.

Sempai: Kind of looks like an old train depot of something like that. Some parts of the area are old enough to resemble that look.
