Poor little abandoned house...


On our last road trip through Rotorua, we drove through various parts of the city. This was one area the other half wanted to show me in a poorer section of town. An old state house from what looks like the 1960s/1970s era when it was fashionable for the government to build properties like this for families of a low social economic background. These days most of them are being torn down in favour of newer houses but unfortunately there are still alot of them that have been used to make/use drugs so they are unsafe and unhealthy to live in. This poor little abandoned house looks like it's been left in a big decaying state with broken windows and timber along with gang graffiti.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday...

  2. I used to love to explore these places, but I'm a little more hesitant these days. It held memories for someone ...

  4. I'm never quite sure why abandoned state housing isn't immediately demolished: particularly when it gets into that condition.

  5. Really sad to look at and when I see abandoned homes my mind generates a story behind it.

  12. Nice shot Amy, the house could use some TLC but will probably be demolished sometime. It's not safe having these houses sit around to be used for illegal activities.

  13. That's a sorry sight, it really does need to come down, doesn't it? Makes an interesting subject though.

  14. Awww ... a sad end to a noble experiment it seems. Dang. (We kind of like exploring areas like this too ... i think you learn a lot by getting out of your comfort zone once in a while).
