This is Pitcher Street in Kalamazoo. Once a bustling industrial section, it is slowly giving way to taggers and decay. The closing of Checker left a rotting carcass behind. The east side of the street is a wasteland; the west slowly withers, given over to the relentless taggers, artists and imbecilic juggalos. It’s just a question of who is stronger. the businesses hanging on, or entropy, atrophy and anarchy.
This building is outside the fences at the former Checker plant. We don’t know whether it is part of the plant, or some remora-like parts supplier with a prime location. Either way, enjoy the carcass.
