New York Pork & Food Exchange
 

Not much is known about this west-end Toronto meat packers... at least, not much prior to the night of November 6, 2006. That was the night that the building housing the New York Pork & Food Exchange Ltd. burst into flame.

While no living animals were on site at the time, the company died that night, along with the livelihood of all workers employed by it.

The residents of nearby housing were happy with the fire, since they had been at odds with the company and their operation there. They had anticipated the demolition of the building shortly afterward... That hasn't happened. The fire-gutted building still stands today, presenting an interesting explore.

While the carcasses are long gone, everything else remains more-or-less the same as it did right after the fire. The damage is still very visible, especially in the freezers, but the site is still safe to visit.

Security is in the form of a chain link fence... which can be easily circumvented. Hazards, however, range from fire-damaged building components, such as charred conduits and pipes, to slaughterhouse equipment. All of the equipment remains... and seeing as how animals were killed here, you'd expect there to be stuff that can hurt you as well.

In the area and happen to like half-destroyed light industrial? Then go check it out.

Just got word that she's being torn down, and that very little is left. Another one bites the dust...

This time I was armed with my dSLR and a drive to start toying with macro shots. And also a drive to refuse to use a flash at all and go straight with long exposures.
