Century City Urbex
Last night Chris and I took the metro downtown to Century city. It’s like a half hour train ride that takes you right to the Global Center, which for those of you who don’t know, is the biggest building in the world.
We walked downtown and met up with Sarah to grab some food from the local grocery store. Fish fillet, burgers, sushi, mashed potatoes, dumplings and dessert filled our table as fuel for the rooftop exploration. I followed Chris down the road who tried to find the entrance to the buildings he spoke of earlier the other day. I found a few buildings I wanted to just trespass over the gate and climb into, but I did not want to do it alone, so we continued on down the road.
After a few miles, we stumbled upon the buildings he spoke about, and like he said, the gate to the entrance, left wide open by contractors.
We walked in like we owned the place and tiptoed through the yards until reaching the entrance to the skyscraper. Poking our heads inside we took a look around the white dusty stairwells. I accidentally touched the walls with my jacket and now I look like a painter. We plodded up the steps stopping only to enter a room and see the inside of what will be rented out to patrons. Everything empty and vacant made us move along and continue up the flight of stairs. 26 stories later we reached the top of the building and step foot onto the rooftop.
The whole city bowed before us from here and only a few spots existed with higher views. If we entered the inside of a construction crane and climbed to the top for the eagle eye view, only then would we be kings. Maybe next time I will indulge in such activities. Until then I’m content with the Century City urbex on the rooftops of skyscrapers. The immaculate views cannot match any other.
