Abandoned Windows

I found this old abandoned apartment building in Trenton New Jersey. I'll post more pictures of some other time but I just remembered about Maryt's Windows and Doors meme. This thing has plenty of windows some real and some not.

-Sorry for the lack of posts and comments lately

By now most of you know that I have a terrible back problem(a surgery that went wrong and left me with chronic pain) Sometimes It's under control but if I'm not careful It gets pretty bad. During these times sitting at the computer for more than a few minutes is unbearable. I miss posting and seeing your blogs everyday but I'm not able to do that as much as I would like. Normally after some rest things get better so that's what I'm hoping for, especially with this Vacation coming up.


Just a reminder that Weekend Reflections is already scheduled and will start at 11:01 am est Friday.

Oh wow, is that still standing? Great shot!

I'm sorry to hear about your back problem. I have one, too. I used to see Dr. Thanki over in Langhorne, excellent neurosurgeon. Pity he wasn't my first. Soon after i emigrated, my back acted up again. Believe it or not, an osteopath - as opposed to a chiropractor - saved me. I really hope you find some relief soon. I know how unbearable that pain can be. :)

Feel better!

Wow, that's good!

What a wall of windows.. Strange that someone took time to paint curtains on the windows around the door..

Take care of your back; I often think about your next travel, and I'd like so much that you could discover a new part of Europe in the best conditions of health.
Our blogs will wait for you; don't worry about that, and treat yourself.

This is a crazy building... great shot. When you're feeling better I would love to hear more about it!

Owen said...

I wonder what sad fate befell the Glen Cairn Arms... has Trenton fallen on hard times ?

Best wishes for relief from back pain, I hope you can find a solution that works...

Strange for colors of bricks and shapes of windows. A very interesting building, a pity it is abandoned even if it has something scary around.

JPT said...

Interesting building.

cieldequimper said...

I love it, abandoned and scary as it may be. It looks very much like north Germany. Take care of that back!

Carletta said...

Hi James,
Sure hope you're feeling better soon. Take Care.
I really love the way they painted the windows at the bottom - complete with cat!
See you Friday for reflections - wouldn't miss it. :)

details very fascinating!

Try to rest, see you soon!

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Great shot James!
I can understand what you are going through, my husband is in the same position you are, it's awful! I sure hope you find a way to manage your pain. Sending healing thoughts and prayers your way.

Leora said...

Poor Trenton, with its boarded up windows. And more so, I hope your back feels better. Chronic pain does not sound good.

Peter said...

Too bad to hear about your back problem! Your least of worries should be about not commenting on our blogs! Take care!

I trust that this building will revive?

ellen b said...

So sorry about your pain. Ugh..
The building is very interesting.
Hope your back improves and you get relief from your pain...

Lew said...

Hope your back is better soon! Those windows and building look forlorn.

Dimple said...

Wonderful windows, there are so many different ones!
Sorry your back is giving you trouble, I hope you get it under control soon!

Sunny said...

I'm sorry that your back is giving you pain, I hope it feels better soon.
What an interesting collection of windows in one building.
Sunny :)

Thom said...

I wish I could magically twitch my nose or wave a wand and get rid of that back problem for you. There again, if I could do that I'd rule the world...there's a thought LOL. I just hope it's okay for you to go on that wonderful vacation. Love the photo my friend. Just a thought have you ever talked to a doctor about Aqua Therapy. You use a pool. James, I did that and my lower back was like brand new and to this day hasn't given me any problems. It's like it was magic. My WR is already done :) WOOT!! Aloha TBK

Ai Shiang said...

Some windows are fake? That's unusual.

Bibi said...

Such a beautiful facade...

I love brick buildings best of all.

I hope you will feel better. I have a tiny ASUS laptop I take to bed with me when sick....!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of it along with some of my meds on my blog!

Kcalpesh said...

That ressembles an operating system....... Windows :-D Cool Shot!

VioletSky said...

Oh, that invisible back pain. How frustrating. Take care of it before anything else.

It is funny that someone went to the trouble of painting those bottom windows - and even adding the cat in the window, nice touch that!

mbkatc230 said...

This is a really interesting building. Love the painted curtains and kitty cat! So sorry about your back problems, chronic pain can really grind you down. Hope you mend enough soon to have a wonderful trip. Kathy

Gallow said...

I like the composition of the photo, and how the building fills the frame. It helps highlight the brick, the windows, and the doors. Excellent shot.

Ebie said...

I understand how you feel about the pain, cause I have taken care of someone who had that problem.

You take it easy and just be strong for your upcoming vacation. I could feel your excitement now. I will also be sharing some photos for Weekend Reflections!

Take care!

Tom said...

So sorry to hear of your suffering... you have wishes of well being jumping from you screen right now as you read this my new found friend... ;o)

I googled this building and came up with quite a bit about it... it's a very interesting place and the area seems to be going through a lot at the moment.

I have not done a Sky Watch post this week as I am showing a series of posts from a local woodland.

Dianne said...

that reminds me of a building I lived in a million years ago in Brooklyn

I love how you captured it, so much detail

I have scoliosis and torn muscles and a recent ankle tear has aggravated all of it
I feel for you and wish you rest and comfort

kaye said...

interesting building. . .
good luck with the back, rest, don't worry about blogging. We'll be here when you feel better.

I love what you've done with this! So sorry about your back. My husband has a terrible back as well, 3 herniated discs and when it acts up it can put him down. He lives with chronic back pain too. You would think that there would be more they can do. Take care of your back!

Cheryl said...

This is an amazing photo. I really enjoyed looking at the different windows. In a city nearby there is a small house with all of its windows painted! Front and sides both. I must take my camera next time to get a photo. I do hope you are feeling better, I too live with chronic pain. I have had three back surgeries as well...Take care and your fans will be here waiting for you, myself included! Have a nice weekend.

Josie Ray said...

That building could be renovated into something truly beautiful. Perhaps it harbors a secret hope...

Wishing you good health...

Woody said...

James,

I truly do feel your pain as I have chronic back problems. Rest up and get well soon..

Great Photo By The Way!

Dina said...

I'm so sorry to hear that, James.
Prayers from Jerusalem that your pain may be eased.

Your picture of the old building is very dramatic.

Icy BC said...

Sorry to hear that you're in pain with your back. Hope you feel better today, James..

Pacey said...

It's really sad to hear about that back James, hope things go better soon with you. Be well...

Thérèse said...

It really, really reminds me of the Ravensburger puzzles. Hard to put together...

Vita Stunder said...

I'm so sorry to hear this James.
I've been away from the Blogosphere a couple of weeks.

I'm thinking of you and wish you the best possible recovery.

Awesome shot!

Martha in PA said...

Awesome photo!

Sorry to hear that you are suffering. I've been under the weather all week myself! Lucy's been sending me well wishes!

I love the Maxine's photo too - totally something from the 50s - B&W movie! (Sorry for combing comments, I'm running out of steam!)

Bogey said...

Anytime you need a strong back James, just give me a holler. Now all I need are two good knees.

Great photo by the way! I always wonder why the building with the greates character are the ones that are mostly condemned.

chrome3d said...

There is no way you can be at the computer and stand? I have thought about it sometimes. It wouldn´t harm the legs.

Quality pic as always!

Life with Kaishon said...

This picture is amazing. I just love it! It tells a thousand stories. What a cool building!

Hilda said...

Strange that someone bothered to decorate it with the fake windows even though it's abandoned. Makes for a fantastic shot though!

I hope you get some relief from the back pains soon. Take care, James.

Reader Wil said...

I am so sorry to read about your backproblem. It's awful. I wish a a good remedy and therapy if possible. Good luck, James.

Reader Wil said...

Oh, and I forgot to say that I find your photo brilliant!

maryt/theteach said...

Oh James, do I know about chronic back pain! I'm surprised how many of us are out there who suffer with it! I hope yours gets better very soon!
Thank you for posting to Window Views. I appreciate it! That aprtment complex is a great post. I love those painted windows on the bottom! :)

Tash said...

Really great photograph. Love the building.
