Hunter Meat Packing Plant #2

Update: The entire plant was demolished in 2012.

Here is the Hunter Meatpacking Plant, hiding in plain view, so to speak. It is in a state of partial demolition, in which it has remained for many years. You might think I am a complete idiot for stepping inside this building, but it is remarkably stable–and incredibly treacherous.

The pictures above and below demonstrate how stunning the ruins of Hunter really are; concrete and steel are behaving in ways they should not normally behave. The floors, their supports removed, drape down like they are made of paper or cloth.

Below is one of the various atriums of the building, allowing natural light to flood down into the building.

Concrete clings to steel tie rods, seemingly defying gravity like in the picture below, in the heart of the complex.
