Recently visited the Bellevue Center, an abandoned mall in a suburb of Nashville Tennessee.
Does anyone else have any abandoned malls/parks/airports/somethinglarge.PNG near you?
Sadly no. Not really.
Live in a sprawling suburban neighborhood with about fifty goddamn churches, but nothing abandoned.
And even if I did have something nearby, it'd probably be no more interesting than a lonely forgotten tool shed in the backyard.
Inside one of the 90+ stores
this was the Disney Store.
I've got loads of abandoned stuff in my town if anyone wants a dump.
That looks almost exactly like Marley Station Mall in Maryland. Not abandoned yet, but inching closer every day.
Look at deadmalls.com
There was one security guy, but he was pretty layed back
head there, but bring a respirator the mold is awful. I got in through the west entrance ( heres a map)
Probably another Taubman mall, that is really similar.
I'm heading back with a much better camera
live where, the area or mall?
This one isn't completely abandoned, they spay and neuter cats once a year
might be occasional squatters, and the Sears is still open, but other than that, no.
No that was Opry Mills. There was a water pipe burst, which caused the mold, and forced out the security.
If you look at the picture, its sealed off. The mall portion has been closed since 2008. Macy's was like sears, but it closed in late 2009.
smoke cloud was from a fire extinguisher I set off.
But you said it was open... Yeah, it's closed off but you said it was open but it isn't but...
Fuck it. Get yourself a brick and smash on through.
Regardless though these images are pretty freakin' great, OP.
I've seen an occasional thread regarding this over on in /x/, but they were pretty stale and lame. This is fresh and new to me. So please continue to post more if you can.
I don't get to do these things where I live, so looking through these is as close as I can get. Pretty sad on my part, right?
Kansas city is notorious for dead malls. (Metro North, Metacalf south, Bannister....)
to clarify, there is no electricity/people/running water. This board is loose, and covers a door that was smashed by some people ages ago. its the only way in as of now.
With October coming up, Halloween and all, I'd definitely come back to a place like this in the middle of the night.
Yeah yeah, I know it's childish and we're all pretty much adults here, but the kid in me wants to do this so badly.
More pics on the way
grab yourself some 2006 era game posters >>569400696
do a search for six flags new Orleans, sadly the ruins were demolished recently
vallco mall. never knew dead malls existed before visiting this place.
I didn't try to turn them onhere , the ones inside the former Macy's are on though.
no idea about vallco mall.
also City Center Mall in Columbus Ohio
can't find a post-closing photo, but same elevator and marble trim everywhere
But the rest of the place is, more or less, abandoned? That's pretty messed up.
You ever find anything weird while going through this? Something out of place? Not just graffiti or a lonely glove, but something else?
Missile launch pad near Seattle. Now it is filled in, but it used to still have some empty buildings and steel trap doors at ground level where the missiles were kept underground. Nice dirt blast berm around the perimeter for jumping dirt bikes too.
the whole movie was filmed in california. like I was saying, lots of malls look like this (see the comments I referenced)
Competition with other Nashville malls, online shopping, and the recession put it down. It was already half vacant around 2004, and these new factors killed it.
it's probably a good thing i don't have access to abandoned malls. I would just show up with an ak and 100 round drums full of green tracers and film the shit out of me goin 4th of july indoors
>i'm the reason we can't have nice things......
exterior is pretty cool as well
check out this guys tour, filmed in 2009.
I would tear it apart too, but my childhood is here. I have a soft spot for the place.
I was in Nashville around that time. I remember some mall I went to seemed to be closing up. Wonder if that is the same one. I remember it had some ferris wheel thing right around it, right off the interstate. It might have just been advertisement for a car dealership. Can't remember what mall that was.
*looks like it was bombed
They used to have a annual carnival, but that stopped after people stopped coming to the mall.
Yeah, I don't want this shit in my system.
(random bathroom, mold is everywhere)
we have this old abandon house near will i live and its only used for sex and a place for you and your friends can go smoke. theres a bed and like 3 couches down in the basement and a community bong and someone put a combo lock on the basement door and only certain people from high school know the combo.
Airport; this particular plane was parked in the woods since the '70s
Yep, it was unfortunately scrapped by airport owner's son for that reason. I spoke with the owner and he was asking $1,500 for it.
If you're in the Tennessee area, Hickory Hollow is pretty quite these days.
A cobo lock? smash the fucker with a hammer
