The Sterick Building Memphis TN.

Here I am a year after the fact, writing about my experience in the Sterick Building in downtown Memphis. A small group of friends, who have been entering “easy” buildings for some time decided to go for broke and really explore something special. We set our eyes on the Sterick building. We made our way to the building Thanksgiving Eve ’09 ready to take the jewel of the city. It was very cold and very windy and we were already shivering from the excitement, we felt so high off the adrenaline nothing in the world could have stopped us. As we made our way to the building, which we have observed many times before and which took weeks of planning to even get in, we found our way in. once in, a trade secret, we made our way straight to the top. We decided best to climb straight up while we had our energy and explore floor by floor on our way down. We flew up about 15 stories, and then we had to switch stairways to make it up the next 14. On the last story we found the entrance into the “attic” where the elevator equipment was. In the VAST area we found the ladder, they were stairs but they were thin and vertical like a ladder, and we made our way to the roof. It was extremely windy and cold when we got up there but we were so hot from the run up it was blissful. The view was amazing, there were so many lights and when we looked over the side we could see the baseball field, which looked like a model from up there and it felt like you could spit into it. We noticed a lot of water collected on the roof, even though it had been a while since it last rained, and we worried it would cave in under us, we could see the underside of the roof in the attic and it looked, mind you it was 30 feet up, like it was just wood planks and you can see massive water damage. After a little looking about in the attic we made our way back down. We examined the penthouse on the top floor first. It extended the entire top floor and had part of it a story down with a fancy stair case that lead to an open area that looked like it was used for an office. The carpet was a dark green with beige walls and red curtains. There was an enormous safe next to a small office on the top floor with papers all over the floor. It was very cool, but there were dead birds everywhere. After we had our fill of the luxury of the past we made our way down to every other floor exploring the wonders of past offices and old telephones and old door knobs. We made it to the first floor, we entered on the third floor, and we noticed some rooms set up for people to sleep in. We were very surprised and we were then worried that there were people in the building. After some searching we found no one, and decided we were done with our adventure into the Sterick. We exited quietly and made our way down the street towards our ride, fulfilled and ready for our next trip out. I am so grateful for that opportunity and to this day have yet to find as much beauty as I found on top of that building in the dead of night Thanksgiving Eve. That is why I do this, that is why life is worth living. Pictures to come soon!

Don't be mean. He said they were coming. Though in general, it IS better to post pics and writeup at the same time.

I have to say the value of this thread didn't go up much even with pics posted. Great job though hitting that place. It's something I have been wanting to do for a while.

I miss both of you. But not Eli. I'll be visiting sometime soon. Maybe late summer I can take a week or two to visit Memphis and we can arrange a rendezvous in Nashvegas.
