    This building is the process of being torn down. It was owned by Remington, made arms and munitions, and then was bought by GE. Its 95 years old, and had its own power plant at one point.

    This is another Remington building, and is apparently haunted. There was a ghost hunters episode about it. Its in a horrible run down neighborhood.

    Being a Detroit native, I love old buildings.

    Someone posted this picture of the first building. You can see how big it is.

    Seriously? That place was downright depressing. I had to travel from Stratford to the Sikorsky building in Bilgeport at the end of Rt. 8 all the time. Even the indoor shooting range was in a pretty sketchy area from the one and only time I went. :faint:

  18. I lived right around the corner from that place back in the late 80s'. It was rough even back then thankfully we moved to Trumbull prior to me going off to college and then the military.
