What is it that attracts us to abandoned places? Is it nostalgia for a simpler past? Or is it something darker than that? What happened here that left these homes abandoned?

Whatever the reasons, there's a creepy feeling when peering into the empty unknown. Artist and author James Gurney takes us on an exploration of an abandoned town deep in the wilderness of the Catskill Mountains. Where exactly is this place?

The first structure is a small old chapel on the grounds of the old resort area known as Wild Acres (sturoc0 via YouTube)

Whatever the real story, it's probably much safer to watch the video rather than try to find it yourself.
