Just an FYI, you might want to relable the floors... what you labed the 2nd floor is actually just the Mezzenine part of the 1st floor and all subsequent floors after that are off by one 3rd should be called 2nd, 4th should be called 3rd and so fourth. The top floor with no windows facing college or the square is the 7th floor. It took me a minute to figure out what I was looking at as far as floors. (and yes, I did see the florecent '4' on one photo... the person that spraypainted it was incorrect)


Well i'm confused now. I originally labeled them the way you stated cause i was looking at the south and east sides of the building which shows the first floor and mezzanine as one floor and what looks like six floors all together, but when you look at a picture of the west side of the building it shows the mezzanine as a separate floor and eight floors all together. That's why i labeled them the way i did.

Ah, I see your confusion. How the building is designed it has a basement and seven floors. The mezzanine is part of the first floor even though it has it's own level of windows. Counting windows on the outside just confuses the situation. In the era that Heers was built (and it's previous store that burned down was designed similarly) it was common to have a second, less segnificant, level on the main floor. if you count from the front when the mezzanine had windows you could still count 7 floors levels, but that's because from the main fronts of the building the cornace is where the true seventh floor is and the first floor/mezzanine have two levels of windows.

I hope this is a clear as mud. Very Happy

It was easier to note when there was still elevators with buttons to verify what level was named what.

Definitely clear as mud..lol. Laughing Yeah i think a lot of people get confused about the "hidden" seventh floor, and i see what you mean about the mezzanine being considered part of the first floor, it makes sense. Willard, i want to thank you for helping me out. I will get the tags on the pics changed as soon as i can.

It looks pretty well boarded up from the ground. You'd have to break to enter, which is a line I am not personaly willing to cross.

You might be able to get in if you had some ninja skills and found a way to climb up a bit. Problem is that almost the whole thing is in such plain sight. Casing the joint would be pretty obvious I think.

This place is sealed up. Everyone can easily see you. I thought maybe behind the place you could enter, but i found no way in. I gave up on this one. Wink

Yeah, jump from the parking garage into a open window is an option... No basement Windows to clump into?

It used to be much easier when the old breezeway/shipping and receiving building were where the parking garage is... used to be a tunnel from that building into the basement of Heers. That got torn out when the building was demolished. (thing had two massave boilers for electrical generation and an original wooden freight elevator from 1915) Anyway that ally is 20 feet across... Not sure how anyone will span that thing... you could try to jump from the parking garage onto the roof of the lower level of Heers, but I don't know if you could get into the building from there. There's a door for roof access that goes into the stairwell on the 3rd floor of the main building, but last I knew it was bolted shut from the inside.
