One of the holy grails of Urban Exploration has been Lew Wallace High School in Gary, IN. After dipping our toes in the UrbanEx (we are part of it so we can use the cool slang terms now) video pool, I drove past this school and was immediately disappointed as it looked completely boarded up.
I put it out of my mind as a pipe dream, even considered calling the City of Gary to ask permission to film in there. When I couldn't figure out who to get ahold of I sort of gave up on the idea. And to be fair asking for forgiveness is easier. Either way, I saw no plausible option to go in and film a video then post it (illegally?).
Then on January 28th, 2017 I made plans to go play some NES Classic with my cousin. He had to go get the warranty activated on the tint on his car, so I tagged along. On the way back we drove past the school. On a whim he got out to check the door and low and behold, one was open.
The next 3 hours consisted of us roaming the building and documenting the decay. The place was SO BIG that we had to make a multi-day affair out of it.
All that being said, I finished editing Day 1.
