2007 and 2010, respectively, in the Crosley Building
There are a lot of abandoned places in Cincinnati. The abandoned subway is clearly the mother of them all, and despite being the most fun to explore (no matter how many times I do it), it's not quite my favorite. It's so tightly locked up and untouched by outsiders, that it's exactly the same every time I go. Over the past four years, I've checked out the Crosley Building even more often than the subway, (check here and here for other posts on Crosley).
Interior, Crosley Building
The last few times I've been to Crosley, it's emptied out quite a bit. It's been a mix of the owners cleaning out the junk, in perpetual preparation for something, and people undoubtedly swiping souvenirs. It's still different every time I visit though, be it new graffiti, more or less junk, or just shifting light conditions and quality.

The photos here were taken over the past few months. I'm currently working on a thesis project, as part of my masters degree in architecture, and my focus is on abandoned spaces, with the Crosley Building being my specific example. I'll likely post more about that in future posts. As of now, I hope you enjoy the rest of the photos below!
