Looks like my kinda place. Though I'd love to see one of those type of factory still in use.

Most of these buildings are currently in use... just no longer as factories. My office is in the red brick one on the left of the frame. I am old enough to remember when this area was loud and scary, though, with all of these buildings full of operating machinery.

This is the neighborhood where David Lynch was living when he conceived the idea that became Eraserhead. In the first 10 minutes of the film, the main character walks across a blasted neighborhood that is CLEARLY representative of places near where this photo was taken.

cities have special tones, dont' you think? the colours of the building are... dunno how to describe it :P nice, I guess

Surely the colors here are very important to me, too. The neighborhood in this shot is a study in the varying shades of brick, concrete, and rusted iron. When it was still actively an industrial area it used to frighten me. Now I'm in love with the tone of it. Go a few blocks in any direction and everything is modern, but here, the industrial tone is mostly intact.
