The brick and broken facade.

Travelling along Ulitsa Gogolya a peek of an abandoned building is seen through a small wooded and over grown patch of trees. It is right between the УВД по ЗелАО ГУ МВД России по г. Москве, Police Station and the Fku Sizo-12 Ufsin Rossii Po Moskovskoy Oblasti, PKU Detention Center No. 12 UFSIN. Trespassers should be wary ;).

It seems to be a rather large almost U-shaped building. Probably apartments of such. The interior, although completely gutted and collapsed on this section does show the remains of a fireplace. Chimneys, as always, still prevail. Windows remain half open at spots were just walls stand. A balcony on one of the exteriors unevenly remains attached.

These buildings average 2 and 3 stories tall. A bus stop is out front along the sidewalk catering to those who are used to seeing this bit of forgotten land. A mini-like parking lot that is often full of cars is in front of the buildings.

Windows left open to rooms that do not exist.

Graffiti covers the outside exteriors of all these buildings, those cheeky devils. A high school resides a few blocks away. Maybe rebellious students are the ones filling these walls with tasteless expressions. A no trespassing notice on yellow paper is ripped on the exterior. One opening has wire and concrete filling it to prevent access. Random boards and spare bits block other entry spots and windows. Nature grows around it, trying to obscure the view.
