The Norwegian summer seems to be long gone.. That’s too bad, as the fjords and valleys looks better in sunshine than in rain. This trip was made to one of Norway’s most famous fjords, where an huge old sanatorium was built in 1902, when tuberculosis was ravaging Europe. The building itself was built 500 meters above the sea. The placement was chosen because of the beneficial climate and the importance of hydro-power. This is also the most expensive building in Norway, right after the opera house in Oslo.For more pictures and information, check out my urbex blog http://rootsinthepast.wordpress.com/2014/08/18/sea-view-sanatorium-part-12-nor/

It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down.  The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites.  An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us.  The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
Prints available here.

Well!  I’m glad to see that it was all in error and we’re not being taken offline after all for DMCA violations - especially since, at least as far as I’ve noticed, we haven’t even been hit with C&D letters.  But just in case something happens to the site, I thought I’d share what has easily proven to be the Destroyed & Abandoned fan favorite among my images.  Salud!
