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.
