Sleepy City

As the native of an industrial, rustbelt city on the decline since the rise of the deindustrialization of the 1970s, I always feel a twinge of nostalgia for Web sites with a mission like this one:
Sleepy City is photographically deconstructing the urban environment. Underground tunnels, derelict industrial sites and urban ruins are where I like to play. Discarded by society, these forgotten nooks and crannies wait quietly for the occasional urban explorer. Grab a torch and have a wander; you might be surprised how little of your city you have ever appreciated."
