The Nave

Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Pittsburgh PA sits silently in the quiet suburb of Larimer. Time has not been kind to Help of Christians, which could accommodate up to 1,000 worshippers in the nave and balcony in its heyday in the ’50s and ’60s. I believe this structure was left to rot away around 2007 or thereabouts and since has been vandalized with all its stained glass stolen.

We visited this beauty last weekend on a photography trip and it did not disappoint. This shot was from the balcony overlooking the Nave.

Thanks for Stopping!

Steps of St. Agnes

The Steps of St. Agnes

Upon gaining entry into the abandoned St. Agnes Catholic Church through a drop down a basement window I made my way across the basement to this creepy lit staircase that eventually leads to the main chapel area of the church. The way the way the light was falling on the staircase made for an interesting scene. Eventually, the security guard got a bit suspicious when a couple others from our group did some drone flying, the guard took up a location directly by the window we dropped down to get in, so we thought we may be in a bit of a dilemma. Luckily the security guard had to relieve himself (which I caught on camera in case we needed a bargaining chip) but he eventually moved on and we ended up exiting the area without further issue.

Most places were security free with easy access but some properties, apparently still owned by someone had regular security patrols on site, like this church and the Historic Packard Plant.

Thanks for stopping!
