Exploring Poconos Ruins with Mike from Brickxbirch

April 8, 2014


(Photos by Mike from Brickxbirch)

More photos today of a couple of abandoned resorts in the Poconos by awesome local photographer Mike (from Brickxbirch)… You may remeber I also recently posted photos of some exploration of Poconos ruins by Matt Hurst and Katie Rey HERE.

Check out Mike’s site HERE for more photos! (A lot more photos, actually.)

Can’t help but wonder, looking at these photos, what it might be like if it were possible for a community of artists from Philly to take over one of these spaces, renovate them, and create a sort of artists’ getaway in the Poconos. Sounds like a Kickstarter campaign, but I just think it’d be cool if Philly artists could connect and work together to create a great space outside the city for little regenerative powwows. Seems like that’d be good for the local Ponocos economy too. I don’t know. Just thinking how we can use these otherwise beautiful spaces that have already been built and just need some love.

    Dope man! I’m down with the project also. I do agree it would be good for the art world
