So we are always posting really pretty things up, here are some really SAD places I am going to post.  They are relics of a former time, poor neighborhoods, or just truly neglected towns and cities.  I hope you find this list interesting.


PORT ARTHUR, TEXAS
Here is a gloomy town surrounding by Texas' oil refineries along the coast.  The town is mostly poor with very few options for the people.  The population has been declining and the town has so little money, they can't properly run the street lights in town, so they have placed make-shift stop signs at intersections.  Downtown is literally crumbling.  From the satellite view, you can see the empty lots that used to be buildings.

Downtown Image here.  Be sure to zoom around 360.  Lots of historic buildings boarded up and crumbling onto the road.

Interesting historic building they gutted but left the facade and turned it into a cover for parking?.

Tallest building in town, not completely empty and gutted.  Note the make-shift stop signs at this intersection.

Sad state of affairs downtown.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BELLE GLADE, FLORIDA

East of Miami in the Everglades is the dying town of Belle Glade.  Downtown is falling apart with high unemployment and a drug problem.  There is no opportunity for many of these small inner Florida towns.

Tennemant life in Belle Glade.

Passing time in the Florida sun.

Take your choice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EAST ST. LOUIS, MO.

One of the most dangerous and poor cities to live in in all of North America, East St. Louis is rife with city corruption, a crumbling historic downtown, and streetlights and intersection lights that don't work because the city can't pay it's bills.  The entire population lives below the poverty line in East Saint Louis.

This beautiful old theater has tree's growing out of it, right in the heart of downtown.

These open lots in the middle of the downtown are known as "urban forests."  That is when the buildings are torn down and nature takes back over.  All this used to be blocks of downtown buildings.

A perfect example of what I said above is this image from 2014 to this image in 2016.

Looks like it's somewhere in Europe. If I were to guess, Russia.

Those tree's are massive though! I don't think Russia has tree's like that.

Anywhere between Alaska, British Columbia, and Washington State.  Those are larch and evergreen tree's.  The cottage style itself makes it seem European, but nowhere in Europe are their forests of conifers such as this.  So it is limited to the North American west coast, specifically the Pacific Northwest.  But it is hard to say for certain.

It is also possible this is photoshopped. (But I really don't think it is).

The cottage style leans me more towards maybe what a Russian explorer or early northern explorer would have done while examining southeast Alaska or British Columbia's inner coast.  So many fjords, it's impossible to really know unless there is a direct source.
