I don't live that far away from Amsterdam, NY where the headquarters for coleco was and I have been meaning to stop there to take a few pictures. The factory buildings and the area in general is definitely on a decline - its sad but I think its part of video game history and interesting to 'fanboys' like myself.
I was in the area and this time snapped a few pictures!
It would be cool to find original pictures taken from the 80's in the same spot for comparison.
This building I believe was the main office/administration building. It apparently has some history to it and has a cool clock tower on it. I believe it got converted to condos.
This building is the corner to a series of factories that I assume was where the action happened. I'm not sure what its used for now but its certainly seen better days, you can see a garage in the foreground that is currently an auto repair shop.
This building was across the street from the office/admin building - not sure if this was part of coleco or not. Its an interesting creepshow nonetheless.
Got closer to the coleco sign in all its faded glory.
This is to the right of the coleco sign where you can see what appears to be a series of interconnected factory buildings - which I didn't really 'explore'. There was some random guys with drinks covered in paper bags walking around which I don't think were really amused by me taking pictures around their hang out.
Hope you find these interesting!
