Abandoned NYC is a new photobook from Brooklyn-based photographer Will Ellis. In the book, Ellis compiled some of his best work from his blog with the same name, and created a hauntingly beautiful view of the City.
Step inside the New York you never knew, with 200 eerie images of urban decay, through crumbling institutions, defunct military posts, abandoned factories, railroads, schools, and waterways. Uncover the forgotten history behind New York s most incredible abandoned spaces, and witness its seldom seen and rapidly disappearing landscape. Explore the ruins of the Harlem Renaissance, sift through the artifacts of massive squatter colonies, and find out how the past is literally washing up on the shores of a Brooklyn beach called Dead Horse Bay.
