[KISH] Searching For Abandoned Building I

So.. I was suddenly in the mood to search for broken building this week (well.. I’ve been trying to search for a while..)

Somehow i have a thing for broken places, used to love the “Brick work” in Toronto (used to be a brick factory, got discarded for years)

First stop i went was M50. on Moganshan Lu (莫干山路)
there is a building I’ve seen a few time.. but never got the chance to find way to access it.
