10 Creepiest Abandoned Morgues on Earth Image: rustysphotography The morgue, well-known as somewhere dead bodies are stored, is a depressing place – a place where murder victims, unidentified corpses, and the victims of unexplained disease end up. Image: Don Kiddick No one wants to visit morgues at the best of times, but perhaps the ultimate in creepiness are morgues that still remain long after their time – abandoned, with nothing left but decaying interiors and the ghosts of the deceased people who passed through them. Image: Andre Joosse 10. Mortuarium Schoonselhof, Antwerp, Belgium “Exploring the morgue and autopsy room gave us a bit of a morbid feeling,” says the photographer who took these pictures.

New York City's Hidden Subway Station Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station… But it sounds like something straight out of Harry Potter, right? It was opened in 1904, with the hope of making it the crowning glory of the New York subway system in elegant architecture and a place for commemorative plaques to honour the work that had resulted in such a successful underground mass transit system. It was to be the original southern terminus of the first ‘Manhattan Main Line’; however the station was closed and boarded up in 1945. The reason for its closure was that newer longer cars were required to match the demand of passengers that passed through the system.

Ghosts of Shopping Past Landscaping overgrows, walls develop mildew, ceilings cave in—a building can be shut down, but that doesn’t make it go away. Brian Ulrich’s photographs of closed-down malls and big-box retail stores reveal the potential ghost towns lying inside successful shopping complexes all across America. Photographer Brian Ulrich lives and works in Chicago. His work has been shown in Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Photography; Galerie f5.6 in Munich, among others. He is a 2009 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellow, and his book Is This Place Great or What was published by Aperture in 2011. Why closed-down stores? The idea went back to 2005 when I drove weekly past a large closed supermarket on the North Side of Chicago. At the end of 2007 with many rumblings of recession, I thought of those pictures and began the project in earnest in May of 2008. Where in America are these empty stores?

Grossinger's, Former Borscht Belt Resort, Sits Abandoned In Liberty, New York (PHOTOS) Grossinger's Resort in the town of Liberty in New York's Catskills was famous back in its heyday. The resort was part of the so-called "Borscht Belt," where primarily Jewish families from New York City vacationed starting in the 1920s. Grossinger's gained increasing fame in 1952, when it became the first resort to use artificial snow for its ski-fanatic patrons. By the time of the founder's daughter's death in 1972, the property included 35 buildings on 1,200 acres. Grossinger's, like many of its fellow Borscht Belt resorts, was closed in 1986 and to this day sits abandoned next to a still working golf-course. When we went to check it out on a recent weekend, we were sufficiently freaked out by the former resort's eeriness. Finding the resort is surprisingly easy, despite some reports we had seen. Herewith, some photos of the former resort.
