Brussel, Belgium

Belgium King Leopold II builds this horse racetrack in 1887 in Brussels near the town of Groenendaal. After 100 years the tracks are empty and the Hippodrome de Groenendaal lost its use. The stables are empty and the main building is being vandalized by local youth. Two years after my visit the buildings were demolished.
