Chad Abramovich: Urban Exploring

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing an in-person interview with urban explorer Chad Abramovich in Burlington Vermont!

Chad runs the fascinating and visually stunning blog Obscure VermontDuring this interview we’ll talk about a post on the blog I found particularly poignant, House of the Syrup Folk.

You could actually feel it’s age, and you could smell the smells – that typical old house perfume and rot that hung around the property like musk.
