    This was the distribution center for Chapman Valve Company. The company owned many factories near this one, but all the others were abated and razed due to contamination resulting from uranium enrichment for the Manhatten Project. A group of former employees and survivors just won a suit for repirations. All that remains of the contaminated buildings are concrete slabs. This building was used to manufacture fire hydrants with the innovative Chapman Valve until the early 90's. There is still a lot of toxic crap here.

    It boggles the mind that people would want to build homes here.
