Last night I decided to bolt out to the Brewster Projects and run up to the top of one of the towers. As to why – well, you can get what is known as “cabin fever” during the winter in this region from being locked indoors during cold weather, so what could be better than climbing an abandoned high rise to shake it off ? Nothing.
Brewster is a cozy set of low income housing high rises right along I-75 on the edge of Downtown. These towers are what is left after some were demolished. Most famous for being the childhood home of Diana Ross.
I chose the southern most tower.
Starting the 14 story slog up to the top – nerve wracking wind through the building making cracking creaking noises on every floor.
The buildings themselves are devoid of anything interesting, so it’s all about the views.
‘surval’ crackas – lol
