Abandoned and derelict buildings possess character, project a unique atmosphere, and assure graffiti writers and urban explorers alike an irresistible sense of adventure.

Over the past few months Charm City Streets has encountered spectacular graffiti in a variety of vacant sites. Please note that a physical visit to these dilapidated buildings requires care. Falling beams could squish you. A rotted floor could suddenly give way beneath you. Plus, there is danger of entrapment and myriad other unpleasant incidents.

In posts over the past week or so, Charm City Streets has led you on a photo safari through twisting alleyways, inside an old factory, past warehouses trackside, and along the streets of Wynwood during Art Basel 2016. Today’s leg of the photo safari leads past the walls Wynwood has to offer in other nooks and crannies. Be prepared to see spectacular graffiti.

The former RC Cola bottling plant in Wynwood stood abandoned until Mana Miami converted it into an event space several years ago. The building and lot are gargantuan in size – providing over 2000 linear feet of wall space. Thus, graffiti writers now converge here during Art Basel to work their artistic magic on the wide expanse of concrete canvas.

During Art Basel 2016, spray cans were shaking throughout Wynwood as graff writers got down and set walls aflame. Dope new work covered walls, alleyways, roller doors, parking lots, boarded-up houses, sheds, and even the occasional slow-moving beach bum.
