Inside the Ruins of a Saugus Institution

by Bill Brenner on December 16, 2014

Those who came of age with me in the Revere/Saugus area will remember Weylu’s, the imposing palace of a Chinese restaurant perched on a hill overlooking Route 1. The place closed some 15 years ago, but the building still sits there, slowly rotting away.

North Shore photographer Brian Cummings went inside this past weekend and took some stunning shots of the ruins. Check it out here.

And be sure to check out more of Cummings’ work on that Facebook page. Beautiful stuff.

About 6 or 7 years ago, it was open. I know because my wife picked me up from Logan airport, and we decided to go there, mainly because we had always driven by it and never been inside. What it had in bigness was more than made up for in its lack of good food.
