The Kingston Lounge. Abandoned and Historic Buildings

In my never ending search for cool stuff on the internet I inadvertently, but gladly found a fellow blogger who photographs and blogs about abandoned and historic buildings in New York.
The blog is called The Kingston Lounge- Guerrilla preservation and urban archaeology. Brooklyn and beyond.  The link to check it out:

I was on the site the other night and there are some excellent pictures of the abandoned buildings at Creedmore State (Psych Hospital), Hart Island, The abandoned hospital on North Brother Island (think Typhoid Mary), Buffalo State Hospital (abandoned), The Victory Theatre in MA, as well as others.  Pretty cool stepping backwards in time and seeing what it looked like when everyone just got up and left.  Some of the sites have collapsing roofs, animal damage and other issues but the pictures tell a story that you wouldn't believe.

I totally recommend checking them out.  For those of y'all on Facebook they have a page there too:

Check them out, you will not be disappointed.

  1. Wow, like the archaeology of the 20th century...

  2. Thank you for bringing these sites to my attention, Moonghozt. There is something rather spendid and evocative about decay. Especially when it is grandeur which is decaying!



please feel free to leave me your feedback....thanks!
