an abandoned warehouse

An "abandoned" place is somewhere that people used to use, but is now empty and unused. Common "abandoned" things include:

  • an abandoned house
  • an abandoned lot (a piece of land with no buildings on it)
  • an abandoned vehicle
  • an abandoned mine

A warehouse is a large building that things are stored in. For some reason, gangs in American TV shows and movies always seem to meet in abandoned warehouses. :)
