 Overview
 Description
Coleco factory/warehouse; Amsterdam NY; I'm not sure of the openening / closing dates of this place.
If you are are old enough, you either had, or had kids who had cabbage patch kids !
Well on 12/23 some of us took a little tour of this place, which once held the toys of my dreams!

This is the culmination of a recent meetup; Sorry the info is so limited. I'm also limiting my pics; because they suck! I',ve had decent results with my fuji in daytime, but not at at night. We'll have to wait until Mat and FJ post some proper pics.

A year or so back this place was a victim of local NED's and they decided to try to see if it was flammable!

We had to try several doors to reach the roof, and found it, on this very odd December night, at 40 degrees, with the wind howling like a bastard. The veiw was exceptional.
Several side stories; but I'll leave that until the other gentlemen post their pics/ tell their stories.
The place is essentially empty, but at night, the howling wind, and an abandonded boombox?

    Let's let the particapants modify this!
    But I was particularly scared of the German Sheperds with lasers on their heads! And they've been trained to radio the Barkersville volunteer "cellar savers"!

    You may consider some "flash bang" grenades to help evade the part and full time security.
     History
    As this is the result of a meet, I'll encourage others to feel free and modify the hell out of this location.
    I did a lot of research, but nothing definitive, except for a reference to an '82 accident in the third floor elevator where a fork lift driver got crushed when the elevator suddenly began to rise.
    I will change the main pic after you post some pics; My skull shot rocked out unexpectedly!
