view from the top floor of Michigan Central Station looking east. from here you can get a good view of that overhanging ledge off the roof where I took the previous photo. you can also see the ledge at the base of the columns that runs the entire length of the building. graffiti writers climb out there to paint messages across the bases on the columns.. one letter per column. right now it reads ‘save the station!’ check out the first photo of this series, if you look close you can read the message.

looking northeast towards downtown Detroit from the roof of Michigan Central Station. this day, the wind was very strong, forceful gusts would knock me off balance making me ensure my footing. standing out on this overhanging ledge was a bit unsettling on a day like this. (Detroit, MI - Corktown)

the top floor above Michigan Central Station. about 20 floors above ground level. the top two floors remained unfurnished and were never occupied during the life of the station. (Detroit, MI - Corktown)

the upper levels above Michigan Central Station. floor boards buckle as the floor sinks creating soft spots, had to be careful walking in some areas. the wind was insanely powerful blowing through these upper floors with no windows, it threw me off balance a few times. (Detroit, MI - Corktown)

above Michigan Central Station, looking down a long hall of offices. the walls lay in piles on the floor, from scrappers I assume. from here you could see nearly the entire length of the building. (Detroit, MI - Corktown)

standing on the roof of the women’s waiting room looking into the giant upper window at the east end of the grand hall waiting room in Michigan Central Station. thats my good friend cab, he also doesn’t hesitate to jump a fence or climb a pipe for a great photo opportunity. it’s not easy finding friends like this.. I only have a couple. it is a good idea to explore with a buddy, for many reasons. also, its not normal for me to include people in my photos, this is my first picture on IG that I intentionally captured someone in. here, it helps to show the sheer magnitude of this building.
