Haunted



Abandoned, originally uploaded by Goggla.
Even in NYC, there are places left abandoned and in ruin. This is part of Admirals Row in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. These once-grand homes were built between 1864 and 1901 to house naval officers and their families. Vacated in the 1970s, they were left to rot, Nature literally eating them alive. Preservationists have long fought to have these beauties saved and restored, but as time continues to pass, hope fades and, at this point, there isn't much left worth saving but memories.
