    Thankfully, we don't all live in rust-belt U.S. cities.

    So you think that fenced private land and dangerous locations are
    exclusive to "rust-belt U.S. cities"?

    Orlando is not a rust-belt city. I wonder how happy RichA would be to
    be dropped off in some of the areas of this city when the pin might
    stab.

    Broken down factories and urban decay make for some of the best
    photographic opportunities.

    You can find urban decay in any dental office in Orlando.

    : photographic opportunities.

    Comically, in light of Rich's characterization, the Boston metropolitan area
    has very little urban decay left. It does have areas where a sensible person
    wouldn't walk around displaying expensive photographic equipment.
