Do you love Urban Exploration? There are plenty of abandoned places to explore in Upstate New York. One group recently got permission to go inside an abandoned power plant in Amsterdam, just down the thruway from Utica.

The power plant featured is the old Crouse Mills Power Plant. This property has a pretty interesting history. The factory was originally in place to power carpet mills. Later on, the factory powered a plant for one of your favorite 80's toys:

The last major tenant to occupy this site was toy manufacturer Coleco, which arrived here in the late 1960s for a run that lasted twenty years. Coleco didn't use the site for manufacturing, but rather for packaging and shipping popular '80s toys such as Cabbage Patch Dolls."

Another video from 2014 had a unique visit too:
