Yeah, so I was bored, and I needed to get into a hobby. I decided I’d kinda check out the local urban decay here in Akron. My original plan was to go into the slummier areas and get shots of run-down bars and abandoned businesses, kinda like macro-urbex, without the breaking and entering.

I landed on W. Thornton St., a few exits from downtown.

This was a car wash or something, might have sold small parts too.

NO DRUGS OKAY?

King Sign Co.: I thought this place was abandoned, but as it turns out, when I took this photo, there was a guy inside sitting there. Luckily, he didn’t see me.

And I was apparently illegally parked (behind the building, so no one would really see my car). Oops. Oh well. Praise Jeezus, I guess.

Here’s a few of the old, vacant buildings along the street. All in all, W. Thornton was pretty quiet [dead]. So much so, that I could have stood in the middle of the street and taken more photos, but I didn’t want to risk it. Maybe next time.
