...this is what a lot of the world would look like. I love the whole "Urban Exploration" movement.

Homes still have closets full of clothes, cabinets full of dishes, and there is even a car dealership still stocked with ‘brand new’ 1974 model-year cars. Dozens of hotels along the coastline sit empty with broken windows and fully furnished rooms and countless cars sit collecting dust in garages. There is even a construction crane still towering above the skyline – the future hotel it was to build never finished.

I was thinking to myself that place would be a blast to photograph, this I came to this: "trespassers are imprisoned or executed; troops are authorized to use lethal force. No official visits have been granted, and the only photographs we have are from bold tourists brave enough to jump the fence and risk personal harm eluding Turkish troops in order to snap pictures."

Um, pass.

That would be the ultimate MOUT training facility. Entire divisions could go at it in there.

That's 1/2 of Detroit, only in better shape.

Looks like sections of Detroit.
