Some places that might, for all intents and purposes, seem abandoned, are really not----they just won't burn out, or fade away. They seem to hang in a state of perpetual limbo, suspended between their former purposeful incarnations, and their ultimate destiny. They have outlived their usefulness, but for one reason or another, they cannot pass on into oblivion. Some linger in their repose for years, or even decades. Inside them time seems to stand still, silently frozen in another era.

Many of these white elephants will be torn down as soon as someone can come up with the money necessary to raze them. Others will eventually be restored and find new life...when the funds can be found to rehabilitate them. In the new issue of Weird NJ, #40, we take a look at just a few such properties around the state that suffer this strange and uncertain fate, and the myriad reasons why they have been sentenced to this purgatory, waiting for death by demolition...or resurrection through renovation.
