Watch That First Step!

With credit to Bugs Bunny.

Binghamton, New York is a city with a brighter past than its future. It enjoyed a heyday during the Cold War as a cluster of defense contractors called the area home. But the end of the period also brought the collapse of the area economy, and the population has been shrinking ever since.

But what struck me about this photo is how, once upon a time, you could move from one building to the other, and what was once interior walls are now exterior walls.
