Krzeszowice -pałac Potockich 27.06.2014
One of the rowhouses on Admiral’s Row, an 11-mansion complex on the Brooklyn Navy Yard that was home to a number of notable Naval personnel over the past 150 years. Sadly, these buildings are currently slated for demolition.
A scene from Riverside Hospital - “Typhoid Mary’s hospital” - out on North Brother Island, in the Bronx. A quarantine island for many years, numerous structures were constructed. One of them, the Boys’ Dormitory, contained a library. When the island was abandoned, apparently most of the bookshelves were worth salvaging; the books - not so much.
It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down. The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites. An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us. The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
