Accidental Urbex - Abandoned Sites in National City
I always find something interesting when I do my daily morning rounds on the job site. Just this week, I went to a location for a future low housing development in National City, California.
Now, this city has always been under the radar for most San Diegans becuase of its size, general reputation, and history of crime back in the late 90s and early 2000s. However, there have been a significant amount of changes these past years with developments and new establishments being built around the area. Still, the concensus for the area remains the same.
The process of transition for the city looks promising but slow. Sites that can potentially be grounds and hubs for devopers and artists are left abandoned. One if the sites I visited looked so unreal that I felt as if I was walking in the walking dead studio. Nonetheless, there was something so calming about these location. There was a constant reminder of the potentiality of creation and eventual destruction. It was a realization of change as a constant process in the universe—something that humanity will always be a part of.
