23 before 24: Downtown Ventures

2014-01-19_0020script After my trip to the 2nd Street Market, I took a walk around downtown to visit some places I've always wanted to, but never have. I'm usually always on the go when I'm downtown, and I never give myself enough time to aimlessly roam the city. Maybe I'll make this a goal for next year. Welp, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy some photos of my little venture.



In the main building I visited, I wanted nothing more than to climb the stairs and head to other floors, but my fear got the best of me. I think I shall return with a buddy next time to back me up in the case of a fall or other threat. In one of the later photos, you can see I came across an area of belongings, blankets, and pillows. I felt it was time to leave at this point. I almost felt as if I was intruding on someone's home and wanted to give the place back it's privacy.

Despite my nervousness to push forward by myself, I'm not opposed to visiting other abandoned buildings around Dayton. Do you know of any? Are you willing to share that information or come on an adventure with me? Let me know in the comments!

Much love, Chelsea
