Warner and Swasey Observatory

Yesterday Kelly and I went to the Warner and Swasey Observatory. Clearly abandoned today, this observatory was once part of Case Western University and here it was discovered that the Milky Way is a spiral galaxy! I think abandoned places are so fascinating and to think this was once a working facility is amazing to me! I've been wanting to go here for a while. You can get inside this building, and we walked into the front entrance, but we were too afraid to go further because we didn't know who might be lurking inside. We decided we were going to take some strong guys with us next time because I really want to explore the it!

The observatory isn't in a great neighborhood but I read of people going to see it and not having any problems. We had the same experience until the very end when a guy drove by really slowly then turned around right by us. We decided that it was our cue to go because we weren't sure what he was up to.

We finished the night at Barrio for some tacos and Coquette Patisserie for macarons! Honestly, all three places I HIGHLY recommend if you live or decide to visit Cleveland!
