J'y suis allé cet été... C'est vraiment incroyable, dommage que les gens se soient sentis obligé de dégrader l'intérieur.. Mais bon, il est désormais détruit depuis peu..

What buildings are being used right now? Where do you usually see security?

I lived at 545 Hovey until September 1967, shortly before my 11th birthday. I played for Luds Motor Sales in 1966, wearing number 10. Just as I cannot recall my 3rd-grade teacher (1964-1965) at Holy Rosary School, for some inexplicable reason, I likewise cannot recall who my coach was when I was on Luds Motor Sales, that summer, just over half a century ago!?! Not just the man's name, I mean; I cannot remember what he looked like, nor what he sounded like, nor how he treated us kids. Memory is a very strange phenomenon! My best friend during my last two years in Brunswick was Rudolph Perez, who lived somewhere in the middle of 7th and Hovey, on the even-number (western) side of the street. His younger brother, Joey, was on my Red Devils team, in 1965, during my first year in Little League. Another of Rudy and my classmates lived somewhere across the street from Rudy-- I think closer to 8th Avenue (such as it was!). His name was Victor, but I cannot recall his last name!?! (He also was a Mexican-American.) If you are older than I, you might have known one or more of my seven brothers and sisters who were older than I; if younger, I also had a sister two years younger. Most of us went to Holy Rosary School, until we moved, and all of us to Holy Rosary Church, where all four of us Hand boys were altar boys for varying lengths of time.

C'est fini le chateau...

J'y suis allé et c'était vraiment pénible à voir.

Il ne reste presque plus rien debout. Et ce qui restait était dans un triste état, les taggeurs et la nature ayant pris le dessus.

Je trouve vraiment dommage, qu'on est laissé ces bâtiments se dégrader de la sorte.

Par hasard, toute visite est prohibée? Ou avec exception il est possible de faire le tour? Je prépare une visite de plusieurs lieux hantés et ce lieu m'intéresse. Merci d'avance

Salut, j'étais en vacance tout près de la prison donc on a pu se balader là bas. En effet c'est impressionnant, et super grand. J'ai pris quelques photo si ça vous interesse.

Ton livre dans un film avec François Cluzet

Salut Sylvain, j'ai tourné comme figurant dans le dernier film avec François Cluzet (La Mécanique de l'ombre)... Je devais apporter des accessoires pour figurer un lecteur dans une bibliothèque... J'ai apporté ton livre, le tome 2 si je me souviens bien... je n'ai pas encore vu le film et donc je ne sais pas si on me voit... enfin, si on nous voit... ton livre et moi !!! Bonne continuation, Alexandre
