Inspirations

Hello INTAR followers,

As a big fan of urban decay and adaptive re-use, I would like share some of my favorite inspirations with you, the INTAR community. To begin, the abandoned portions of the NYC subway system are a personal favorite. The system is over 100 years old, originally built by three competing companies, and is the lifeline of the city. Naturally, with that much history, it’s full of beautiful, fascinating abandoned segments.

This website does a very good job of documenting all of the abandoned portions, and provides a very detailed history of the use and lifetime of each individual abandoned segment. It’s fantastic.

Enjoy!
