Everyone Should See What’s Inside The Walls Of This Abandoned Telescope Factory Near Cleveland

No matter who you ask, Clevelanders seem to have mixed feelings about the ways our city has transformed over the years. Many neighborhoods have become artist havens, while other districts benefited from renovations made in preparation for the 2016 Republican National Convention. Though the city is doubtlessly evolving and learning to cater to a diverse crowd, many cannot tear their eyes away from the crumbling remnants of an industry that hide within our Rust Belt city. Luckily, many once-abandoned structures are enjoying a new life, as is the case with Heinen’s Downtown location. This provides skeptical locals hope for buildings like our famous abandoned telescope factory, which is still in need of a bit of love.
