Empties of Jerusalem - 1 - Jerusalem Train Station

Rooms: Many. High ceilings. Very messy. Shattered glass, stones, junk.
Access: walk in from the back. All the windows broken. Just climb in.
History: Built 1890s, a local Jewish entrepeneur and a French railway company, connecting Jaffa and Jerusalem. 1946 Bombed by the Irgun - Jewish resistance/terrorist organization. Used by the Ottomans, the British, and the Israelis.
Empty Since: 1998, two years after the service to Jerusalem was cancelled.
Water, Lecky: Bring your own. Seriously, this is Israel... first thing they do is cut these off, and don't expect anybody to connect you.
Best for: squat parties.
Likely to last: 2 hours.
