It struck me that Wrigley Field was more decrepit than I would expect a building like that to be if it sat untouched for 15 years, which I think was the timetable. Not that I expected anyone to be fixing it up--just that I didn't realize that much maintenance was required. I haven't done much to the outside of my house in the last 15 years, but it doesn't look THAT bad.....does it? Maybe I should take a closer look.

It doesn't take very long for nature to take over. There was some show on that depicted what would happen to structures and cities without man around. And much of the data was extrapolated from populated areas that for one reason or another are now ghost towns. It didn't take very long for nature to start reclaiming everything. Since man has to constantly do maintenance to prevent nature from encroaching on everything.

Oh, yeah. I didn't notice. The disaster removed all of the electricity and all of them.

I'm thinking about some abandoned buildings I have seen that have been vacant for 10-15 years and none of them look like that. I suppose some amount of landscaping could be done on these buildings and I just didn't know it but I have never seen buildings look that bad.

The ivy in Wrigley Field would take off and consume the building without proper maintenance making it more overgrown than other structures. The pics below are from a Japanese mining island abandoned in 2001.

Heck, it doesn't take long for nature to take over my mom's neighbor's yard!
