Shocking video and images have emerged from inside the doomed Oakland warehouse depicting a squalid 'hell-hole' not fit to live in - as a tenant told how cats urinated everywhere and it was the venue for an orgy.
The footage and photos, obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, shows the living quarters of some of the residents of the building known as the Oakland Ghost Ship.
While photos on the art collective's website show an eclectic and creative space for artists and musicians, the reality of life behind the scenes in this dilapidated building is horrific.
Dark and dingy rooms don't look fit for humans, with exposed electrical wires and panels, venting pipes and piles of junk and old clothes everywhere.
Tenant Shelley Mack, who disclosed the pictures to DailyMail.com also revealed that there were three fires while she lived there - in late 2014 and early 2015 - caused by faulty electrics.
yes, sounds like rave ok, use to work for a company sponsor of these. they always look like this. rent out building for underground party and chain exit so you cant sneak friends in for free, then police break it up from being non up to code or lack of liscence. Always some strange theme with same techo music. very common even in Salt Lake City where I live.
