The Abandoned Subdivision of Rio Vista, California

Yes, the outer Bay Area has it’s own abandoned subdivision, listed in one place as one of the 9 Worst Recession Ghost Towns in America. (3 of them in California). This has also been in the San Francisco Chronicle and the local Solano news and this blog has more aerial photos

It’s worth noting that as of late 2014 the remaining 13 unfinished homes that are in the photos have been torn down because people were going in and stripping all the copper and doing damage, so they just razed the whole thing. I stopped by the week after all the homes were raised and this is what it looks like now

Nothing but empty streets and grass and lightpoles and birds and one little tower
