The abandoned Brewer Rec Center. Hey – according to this site, its available for event rentals ! Yeah, maybe a really yucky rave party, but…
Brewer received funds in 1979 for renovations of the kitchen facilities and a new roof.
In 2003 they were closed down.
In an ongoing effort to continue to streamline recreation activities and provide quality, cost-effective recreation programs to Detroiters, the Detroit Recreation Department will close Brewer Recreation Center, 4535 Fairview, on Friday, June 23.
So of course, this meant leaving the thing open to be looted, scrapped, vandalized and destroyed by elements.
The insides of this place were the usual blown out stinky mess of peeling lead paint and water torn plaster.
