Aerosol Factory

Out of sight out of mind, but never the less extremely interesting. This 176,000 square foot factory sits hidden behind the trees in the heart of Milford's industrial district, adjacent to the once famous and now demolished Milford Jai Alai. Once inside this outrageously creepy building you are surrounded by amazing pieces of graffiti work and the irony of it all is that it used to be an aerosol factory... As seen in the video bellow you cant take 2 steps without running into a can of spray paint. Today the building sits as a canvas for "taggers" and the massive aerosol tanks sit intact. Out back you can even see the old train tracks that came through to the shipping and receiving building.
The building has been abandoned since the mid 1990's

I-84 Stack Interchange

Hidden in plain view towering over Interstates 84 in Farmington, CT sits a multi-stack highway interchange never used by the public. If you thought CT Route 11 was cool you are going to love this. It was planned to be the first four stack interchange in Connecticut's history and plans reached there final details in the 60's and by 1969 when man landed on the moon the construction began. While the highway was almost completed, in 1973 issues with the MDC reservoirs in West Hartford halted all further work and the interchange was left for dead.

As of 2015 there are no plans to open the interchange that has sit dormant for more then 20 years although one of the ramps has since opened.
