Tall, sinister buildings loom with empty cavities and the air of foreboding. As you make your way through the pages of Abandoned Connecticut: First World Wasted, you will encounter tales of horror, rumors of torture, speculation of death, testaments to hauntings, and perhaps some of the most magnificent and alluring architecture New England has to offer.
In a disposable society of pop-up houses, warehouses churches, cheap construction, and strip malls, the talent that we have lost in our buildings is astounding. History crumbles into piles of brick and is hauled away with the trash. Is there any wonder that so many wish to explore our forgotten to document what will be lost? If not us, then who?
So much has been lost that could have helped so many. Read through these pages and learn about our structural ghosts from their inception to their ultimate demise and a region that has evolved into a First World Wasted.
