Guerrilla preservation and urban archaeology. Brooklyn and beyond.
How very very beautiful. I was really happy with your pictures of the Admiral's row, but now I see I missed this graveyard when I visited New York. Thank God I saw the Navy houses!
I once took a boat ride around SI, and it looks pretty cool from the water.
beautiful photos. well done
utterly freaking fantastic shots!
Witter Marine today is a shell of what it was in the 70s when you could walk from the office to way out in the river just crossing ferryboats, tugs, barges, Navy vessels ect. There was so much of New Yorks nautical history there,. Today very little exists and it would be a very dangerous place to trespass, enjoy the photos and stay safe.
Every one of these shots are just great. And your other b;ogs are equally fine.
My father used to work at Brewer's Drydock on Richmond Terrace. I wonder what it looks like now.Excellent.
Staten Island artist, John Noble, devoted a lot of his life to documenting this area. There's now a museum with his collection in Snug Harbor: http://www.noblemaritime.org/
Just how very lovely. I used to be really happy with your images in the Admiral's strip, however I see I overlooked this specific graveyard while i frequented Nyc. Thank God I found your Deep blue houses!Cheap RS GoldBuy Cheap RS Gold
I grew up in the house surrounded by the marine junkyard. My siblings and I have countless memories of playing on the barges, ferry, freighter and buses. What a playground our father provided for us. Thanks for the memories!!Sheila Brown
