Thanks for posting this up. Yeah I have seen photos of this before, very interesting place. I may have seen this same blog posting, not sure.. A lot of it does look beyond repair due to the expense. You have to keep in mind that there hasn't been any type of maintenance for about 40 years. And it is exposed to the elements.

Its good to know now that the government would like to preserve the site. That is certainly a very historical site. You just don't find cities like that anywhere.
