Seen Around Midtown: Switzer School

At the beginning of the month, Matt and I explored the Switzer School, which has been closed since the 1980s. I've been waiting for a chance to post these pictures, and I guess today's the day!

As abandoned buildings go, the Switzer School is quite interesting because, rather than being a single building, it is a complex of 3 separate buildings. The spaces between the buildings were cluttered with debris from broken windows, what looked like pieces of roofing tiles, and various other junk left by persons unknown.

The first image is the far left section of this building.

The parking lot in front of the first building.

The main entrance of the second building.

This sign isn't very effective at keeping people out.

Around the side of the second building is a grassy area
that separates the 2nd and 3rd buildings.

Looking out towards the street from between the 2nd and 3rd buildings.

There was a strange little opening that we went through
that led to another grassy area...

This in-between area was graffitied even more heavily than the rest
of the building. Apparently it is/was a popular place to party?

Taken while I went back through the little tunnel.

Matt had fun finding all the climbable places.

The 3rd building.

I thought for a minute this was the old West Magnet on Summit, where I spent my freshman year(the year before it closed).
