On my final trip to Riverside Hospital – a rare summer visit – I impressed by the way that the lush greenery of North Brother Island added a lively feeling to scenes which otherwise might just look cold and decrepit.  I explore this notion in my latest blog post on The Kingston Lounge.  Here, ferns sprout from the ground of the physical plant, while leafy vines hang from above.  Algae grows on the brick ovens at left, and on the asbestos of the pipe works at right.  Combined with the cool blue light filtering down from above, an otherwise stark and colorless industrial scene is transformed into a vibrant – if bizarre – modern ruins scene.

Of all the abandoned hotels in the former resort town of Sharon Springs, the Hotel Empire is the least vandalized.  This might seem surprising, being that it’s been abandoned longer than most – the last room was rented out in 1993.  But this lovely building, once a bustling resort hotel that catered to Brooklyn’s Ashkenazi Jewry, is smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood, surrounded on four sides by houses that are still occupied.  As such, it is not an easy target for the spraypaint-and-sledgehammer crowd, and has remained virtually untouched in 21 years.  On the top floor, this Du Mont combination radio/television set (roughly 1940s vintage) remains remarkably intact, and surprisingly has not been looted – a testament to the difficulty of sneaking into this hotel, and to the wonderful treasures one is likely to find when a location is difficult to access.

just a few pics from one of the many abandoned houses in Sandy Hook, Nj! Built in 1890 the houses were used by soldiers. In WWII American soldiers would stay here before being shipped out to Europe. Many of the former Sandy Hook army base houses have been left to rot with a few exceptions. Very lucky to have finally snuck into one of them!
