That Does Not Compute

Yet another revisit to the Sykes Datatronics factory, a place that will always be meaningful to me since it was my first abandoned building, just about 7 years ago. After an astounding 12 arson fires, and 25 years exposed to the elements, it’s starting to seem like this place is going nowhere fast. Other than a few holes in the tarpapered roof, the structure is as solid as ever (if you ignore the warping parquette floors over the foot-thick concrete), and the neighborhood is still in stagnant decline, despite being within sight and sound of the soccer stadium. I don’t imagine it will be all that successful but I still have some hope for UR UrbEx; I’ve left but I guess I’m not quite gone, as they brought me in for the start of what would be my 7th year to guide them here.
