Welcome. Mind the dust.

Old news is so exciting.

No, really. Ever drive by a weedy, trash-strewn empty lot and wonder what happened to the flashy retail complex that some developer was promising a few years ago? Or pass by an abandoned building and think about what it looked like in the past?

That’s what this blog is about. Throughout the L.A. area there are plenty of places that have sat unused or ignored for a while, and how that happened often makes for a good story. It’s a little urban exploration, a little history and a lot of solitude.

I’m based in San Gabriel Valley, so my expeditions likely will be concentrated there, but there won’t be any limits on coverage. If you’ve got a tip about someplace interesting, I’d love to hear it. Send me a note at jfigscribe@gmail.com or on Twitter at @jfigscribe.
