Pictureshack Entertainment Seeking Vacant or Abandoned Properties for New Cable Show
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Daniel Amigone
Email The Author: Dan@pictureshackentertainment.com

Pictureshack Entertainment is starting a new show on a national cable network and we're looking for vacant or abandoned properties—factories, theaters, mansions, churches, hotels—with a lot of history. The buildings must still have some artifacts/objects/architectural details left behind.  The more the better!

The host of our show, Jay Chaikin, is a history fanatic. He makes a living as a carpenter and wood worker at his shop in Allentown, PA.  In each program, Jay and his team explore a different location in search of items of historical value.  Through these items, Jay paints a picture of what it was like to work/live/stay in that location when it was open.  The hosts on our show will be purchasing a few of the items and refurbishing them so the owners of the building must be willing to contemplate selling some of the artifacts left in the building. Our goal is to honor the items we find in these buildings and tell their story that might otherwise be lost forever. Jay is not simply hunting for treasure he can flip for a profit. Rather, he is looking for items and elements that the untrained eye would surely disregard.

Ideally, we want at least a few rooms in these buildings to look like they were lost in time, or like people disappeared in the middle of the work day. We want to enter a lost world—a time capsule of sorts. If you know of a building that fits the bill, please submit a brief description and any photos to Dan@pictureshackentertainment.com.
