Top 10 Abandoned Spots & Shots | New England

Filmed/Edited by Jason Allard

Over the past two years I’ve visited many abandoned places (mostly in New England) and told their stories through drone shots. Recently I’ve been able to through all my footage and put together a list of my favorite 10 places, and what I think are the best shots from each one. If you’re from Rhode Island you should recognize some of these.

Some of these clips here are in standalone videos on my channel where you can learn about the full history of these places. But, I included a lot interesting clips that haven’t been seen before. Also in this list are scenes from an abandoned video that I never released…

    Awesome! My favorite has got to be the Pawtucket Central Falls Train Station, I’m very interested in trains and especially the stations.

  2. Nighytfuryten on December 6, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Omg I’ve been to the bells estate I have some great photos

  3. Logan Podedworny on December 6, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    Where is the summer camp in Rhode Island?

  4. Madison Ellsworth on December 6, 2020 at 9:47 pm

    These shots are amazing! Love this video, and is the military base hard to get into?

  5. Brandon on December 6, 2020 at 9:48 pm

    Great video dude! Whoever thought Texas Two was going to float he was so wrong

  6. Darmalarm777 on December 6, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    The Bells is wonderful, it’ll be so sad when they tear it down.

    When I was at North Truro Radar base, the barracks and housing was fenced off. It was such a let down as I drove about three hours down to cape cod, but I still got some cool pictures.

  8. Val on December 6, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Awesome production on these, crisp as hell. Thanks for the great work!

  9. GoldenGunz11 on December 6, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    where is the military base

  10. Jaki on December 6, 2020 at 9:53 pm

    I was at the number one spot about two weeks ago now! Everything is fenced off now……

    You went to whs? When did you graduate? Your name sounds familiar

  12. ViewHunter on December 6, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    What’s up man, I’m really loving the content you’re putting out. You really capture the essence of beauty. I’m a Rhode island based photographer and getting into YouTube now, do you mind if I give you a shout-out in my channel? Would probably use a little clip and put your channel in the description below plus verbal thanks. Hope to hear from you. I send you a follow request on Instagram.Take care. Would love to collab one day ✌️

    I find it sad to see once beautiful period architecture crumbling from neglect. I am old enough to remember the beauty and majesty of the bank building, and it is a shame that it has been so vandalized and decayed to the point that it will not be able to be brought back to life.

  14. J&M Explorations on December 6, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    WOW….incredible video Jason!! We’ve been wanting to do a top 10 of our favorite videos for a while now but we have been slacking! LOL. We have been to a lot of the locations on your list but the one that we’ve had on our list for some time now is your #1. This was very well done!! Nice job as always!!! 🙂

  15. BDM Garage on December 6, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    You really should check out the Tweave mill in Norton MA. Just had a fire so it’s gonna get torn down soon I would assume.
    Love the videos!!!

  16. HealthySelfie on December 6, 2020 at 10:07 pm

  18. Matt Eastwood on December 6, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    There are some really great shots in here Jason … and I love the commentary too. It really personalizes what we are looking at. Bravo.

    Hey Jason. My name is Mark. I grew up in Woonsocket and still live on Carrington Ave. Love all your work. I believe my sister Sara went to school with you. Question. I off road in my Jeep. I found years ago a story of Hanton City. Located in RI. Been there and I have to say I found it haunted first hand. Everytime I go out..something breaks or or there’s an erie feeling to the trail run. Lot’s of history on this place ranging from people that were exiled to people that wanted to be alone. There are foundations of houses and wells here. I would very much like you to do a video on this place. Please get back to me. I will gladly help out in anyway possible! Keep up the good work!

    Where are you living? I’m in New Hampshire and looking for good photo spots and just general exploration.

  21. ALLISON Ouellette on December 6, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Explorer here. Thank you for doing these videos with intelligence and class, you show not all explorers are just punk kids

  22. Joe Adams on December 6, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Hey Jason, that was absolutely amazing! It is really something how beautiful abandoned places can be and I thank you for sharing. I hope that Ellie is doing well in these crazy times!

  23. Gilbandin123 on December 6, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    I am absolutely stunned from the quality of this video, and how small the views are. I’m excited to see you grow as a magnificent channel, good luck 🍀

  25. Trash Man on December 6, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    Amazing. Don’t stop doing what you do, you’re incredible at it

  26. D.B. Cooper on December 6, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    This is an amazing video!! I used to do Urbex in San Antonio, Tx. I now live in SW New Hampshire and I know of some places that would be so cool to explore.

  27. Paranormal playground and Urban Exploration on December 6, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    We were not "paranoid"! Both the USA and the USSR were a great threat to each other! I grew up in the 60s and 70s and I have lived in three contanints and the envasion was not what we woried about the most, we were woried about an attack by ICBMs!
