Places like this exist? In America, there are hardly any abandoned places around. People are too good at finding them and bulldozing/deconstructing them. Which sucks because people like me can't go and explore them. But then again, it's all probably just done for safety...

That is not true, in US there are many great abandoned places, but I guess it depends on state. Maybe take a look uer.ca, many photographers there are from USA

This would make an awesome theater in the round. There's already plenty of piping in place for hanging lighting instruments. :)

This is an interesting photo of an interesting place. 8-)
Looks like this monument is again popular on deviantART because this deviation:

But I think that *Matthias-Haker has maybe photoshopped his photo too much... Your photo looks more realistic. 8-)

The monuments are decaying, but the mentality isn't.
That's bad.
