Oakland Station 0047

    Newer Older

    The former Southern Pacific train station in Oakland. It's been abandoned since the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. I've been scheming to get in for a few years, and got my chance today. It's a beauty. More to come in the following days.

      Wonderful space, but its those bizarrely lost wingback chairs that really make the shot. But you really should post this in a much larger size so viewers can study the detail.

      Is it still possible to figure out a way in?

    11. Dead Slow 48 months ago | reply

      Not by sneaking in, there's an alarm system now. But you can offer some cash to the caretaker, who will let you in for a few hours.

      Hmmm... I am missing Oakland now.
