Abandoned Shelter of the Week

On Atwater Street, across from the quaint St. Aubin Park and Arena on Detroit’s east side, sits the sprawling ruins of the Globe Trading Company.

One can barely make out the remaining white-painted text giving ghostly hints as to the whereabouts of the shipping and receiving areas at the ancient warehouse. What seems to be the only entrance is a rotting wood door with two padlocks. Large “For Sale” signs hang on all four sides of the structure. Unfortunately, phone numbers listed are out of service.
