Abandoned military base “The Asylum” in Miami, Florida
The military base was a nuke missile installation (HM-95) from the Cuban Missile Crisis era,  decommissioned in 1979. The former site of the launch facility is located about a mile north of this site, and is now used a detention center for illegal immigrants.
Despite a fence and a sign pointing out that this is government property, it has been abandoned for decades. In recent years, pretty much only urban explorers, paintball and shotgun enthusiasts, graffiti artists, and high school kids looking for a scare have ventured inside. Apparently it smells horrifying and it’s extremely sketchy. A lot of illegal business goes down there at night.
