The title here is a play on the real name of this location, which I suppose I should not mention in a public thread. This Niagara Falls motel and attached house was the site of a human trafficking bust earlier this year. Shortly afterward, it seemed like the entire location was vacated overnight. Some of the hotel rooms show a level of grime and squalid conditions that would have taken longer than just this year to reduce to. And yet, those rooms look like they were lived in. The entire basement of the main building is flooded with a blackish, oily soup.

I drove by here just this morning and found the back door propped open in the afternoon sun. Expecting that a contractor was stripping the interior, I didn't think much of it. On a later pass, I couldn't help the temptation to stop and have a look around this wretched place. Personal belongings are strewn out every window, littering the property with clothes and bags of goods. There is a level of desperation here that definitely doesn't suit the busy (albeit seedy) part of town that it can be found in.

The thought that there were children being raised by people who supported (even just passively) sexual exploitation is nauseating.

They sure left a lot behind, though. Great shots! I love the depth of field of some of those.

Those Jacuzzi tubs are worth a fair bit, hope they get saved.

Why does it feel like there is always porn kickin around in Niagara abandonments, not saying there isn't any anywhere else but I just have this feeling there is more there.




Is this reality or my memory getting mileage? Am I staring at the sun or blood vessels in my eyelids

I didn't realize what a jump it was until I drove by tonight and found orange fencing erected all the way around the entire property and a giant pile of mattresses in the parking lot. It really was a visit during an unintended small window of opportunity.

And to think you feel that way without ever having even gotten to see this place (that was very near your old stomping ground!)....
