Our neighborhood near Monterey is a dichotomy. New homes are being built right next to old army barracks and buildings, remnants of the decommissioned Fort Ord. Many buildings from WWII era and earlier stand across the street from brand new homes, shopping centers, and restaurants. The University of Monterey Bay has built a brand new campus on the site of these old structures.
Since we moved here 2 years ago, I have always wanted to drone some of the old barracks of Ft Ord before they disappear. The buildings are gradually being torn down to make way for the new. Occasionally one will burn down, presumably from a homeless fire, and they just let it go as it will be eventually torn down anyway.
Enjoy this short video visiting these old buildings before they are gone…
