A me-sized hole in the half-demolished skyway looks about a story down to the ground. Step lightly. Arista 100.
The “Inner-Urban Jawbreaker,” a one-of-a-kind, salty-but-sweet remnant of a bygone heavy-industrial period in this area’s history.

Shadows of distant power lines are carried to the concrete by street lights.
I like to think of this as the hardware abstraction layer. It’s one of many subassembly monorail conveyors that dipped onto the factory floor to deliver assembled subsections where they needed to be on the main assembly floor below.
These monorails were on a side line to build smaller parts of the Ranger before being attached to the truck itself. Note in the upper right that there’s another conveyor above this section.
A better view of the belt system that drives all the machinery in the plant.
