Former US Navy barracks used from the 1940s - '90s, now sits what's left of the rotting 10 story concrete structure that's been hit hard by taggers and scrappers. Each room typically contained two bunk beds and lockers, some rooms still had mattresses left behind. Located just a few feet away from this building was the former toxic dumping ground the Navy used. Quite strange they stationed people so close to it, as the site to this day still contains hazardous radioactive material.

Looks like it's a pretty solid construction. Reminds me of the old US Army Hammerhead barracks of the 50s. I saw some of those in the process of being demolished. So much rebar and layered concrete. They were built to withstand a minor attack.
I know at least one decommissioned Army base that still has almost an entire block of vacant run down Hammerhead barracks.
