Ghost Towns, Abandoned Factories and Other Ruin Porn

Weather Channel features ruin porn from all 50 states (h/t Kaye).  Here's New York's:

The swimming pool of the abandoned Grossinger's Catskill Resort Hotel in Liberty. The hotel, part of the so-called 'Borscht Belt', once welcomed 150,000 visitors annually but it was abandoned in 1986. The Catskill Mountains are littered with run-down buildings built when the area was a popular summer retreat. (Flickr/Forsaken Fotos)
It is amazing how many of the photos are of places which were recently abandoned.  Ohio's is an abandoned shopping mall in Akron, which was built in 1975.  Just another reminder of how wasteful American society is.
