Old Train Station, Detroit

For years now my very favorite spot in Detroit has been the old train station.

Once a gorgeous, finely detailed grand building now, broken, neglected and practically falling apart.

It’s beautiful.

Through the years and the decreasing care and upkeep, the building has persevered and is still standing strong and beautiful.

For a long while, all the windows were smashed and jagged giving it the look of something straight out of a Hitchcock movie.

Recently, however, new windows were put in and I had to make a trip over to see and I figured I’d take you along for the ride with me.

Personally, I think the new windows look a bit out of place but I’m honestly just happy the building is still around.

You can’t go inside but it’s well worth a drive by.

It’s hauntingly beautiful – one of those places where you wish it could talk and tell you all of the things it’s seen and how the world has changed over the course of it’s life.

    Love that third photo! I suppose the old train station isn’t in use anymore. Public transportation certainly isn’t fancy, but I feel like there is a genuine energy about it. It’s so full of life! And even old, forgotten places like this hold traces of it -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    That’s a really neat building. I love older structures- I bet it really was stunning with the broken windows (in an odd, eerie way).
    (I just read your “About Me” section- tell me Lupin is named for Harry Potter & it all relates to your blog name… :D)

      It was incredible with the broken windows – it looked utterly neglected and haunted which just made it all the more beautiful! Yes, Lupin is named after Harry Potter – I call him Lupin Little Wolf. So happy you made that connection with that and my blog name! X
