Photos: Urban explorer mystery pics from vacant CU medical buildings
More than five years after the University of Colorado moved its hospital, medical school and other offices to the Anschutz Medical Campus, the buildings at Ninth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard are still vacant -- or so we thought.
Although there is no movement on the outside -- as one developer after another has abandoned the project -- there appears to be activity inside places like the morgue seen here. And as we note in this week's Off-Limits column, there's plenty more photographic evidence of visitors on view below.
Earlier in June, someone using the moniker Sissyfuss posted dozens of photos from inside the complex on uer.ca, a website for urban explorers -- the brave/foolish souls who sneak into empty buildings or structures for thrills and sometimes chills.
And chills is what you'll get viewing some of the photos of the abandoned morgue, not to mention the hospital emergency room, the cafeteria, the power plant, the psychiatric ward, a conference room and numerous labs and offices.
To read more about the status of the photos, urban explorers, the former medical campus, and the schools' response, read "Exploratory Surgery."
All photos are taken from the www.uer.ca web site.
