Some cities die. The people leave, the streets go quiet, and the isolation takes on the macabre shape of a forlorn ghost town, crumbling with haunting neglect and urban decay. From Taiwan to the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, these abandoned cities lurk in the shadows of civilization.
Their histories are carried in hushed whispers and futures stillborn from the day of their collapse. Some have fallen victim to catastrophe while others simply outlive their function.The Presurfer
