The guards were not a problem for us we fought them off with our bare hands. Someone would say the guards were never seen again.

The guards turn you around immediately and will not even let you take a picture without filling out a contract in pain money like your movie producer something.

I've been on several different video shoots on this location. The inside is in horrible disrepair. Its really unsafe now to go in.
