Images of Crumbling New York

Two posts caught my eye recently, both exploring New York’s abandoned spaces. Go out into any of the outer boroughs and the mind starts to wonder about all those old industrial spaces. Who lives there? What happens in there? 

These two photographers went to find out. 

Will Ellis blogs at abandonednyc.com and has released a book of his images Abandoned NYC.  

Patrick Schnell’s work focuses on Gowanus, an area that’s still very much active yet full of old calling down buildings, and new ones rising as well. 

New York, always rising, always falling.
