When in Rome, do as the Romans, er, don’t… which in this case means “use this escalator”. Flickr user Rory MacLeod (mac.rj) discovered this marinara-sauce-red abandoned escalator in October of 2010 while traversing a closed-off park. Dude, that park was closed for a reason!
Too Hot To Trot
The Phoenix Trotting Park in Goodyear, AZ opened in 1964 but closed a mere two years later. Poor planning and road access issues conspired to keep horse racing fans away, leaving the facility to sit abandoned and unloved for the past half-century… and boy, does it look it! Flickr user Heather Hinchliffe Rode (Digital Heather) braved the blistering desert heat in July of 2013 to bring us these stark images.

OK, so these aren’t your father’s farm terraces but something’s growing here, and presumably a skylight is making it all possible. As for water… make that a busted skylight.
