Locks are so symbolic, aren't they?
I imagine that this latch and lock once protected the items beyond the door. Sadly, this lock now prevents trespassers from entering the center of the building. The many floors and an even greater number of rooms, of a once thriving factory, now sit waiting for a wrecking ball. Upstate New York is literally crumbling in all corners of the state. These deteriorating buildings serve as a reminder of the demoralization of 'dying' cities everywhere. People are leaving New York in droves. Given the means to do so, I'd be part of that crowd.
