Video inside New York’s Derelict Institutions: “A History Abandoned”

Last month Vocativ.com followed me through three decaying institutions in New York City, resulting in a three part series, “A History Abandoned” which you can check out on YouTube.  If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to venture inside an abandoned building, these videos give you a pretty good idea.  Props to Vocativ for keeping the focus on the history.  Let me know what you think and if you’d like to see more like this in the future!

Episode 1: Kings Park Psychiatric Center

 

Episode 2: Letchworth Village

 

Episode 3: New York City Farm Colony

 

Head over to the brand new AbandonedNYC Print Shop to pick up some high quality prints of Letchworth, Kings Park, the Farm Colony, and other NYC hospitals, factories, and military sites.

  2. What happened to the videos that Will hosted by himself back when Abandoned NYC first started?

I can’t pick a favorite image from my shoot with @coralandtusk last month, but we definitely made some magic with this twilight airstream moment. 🚐⛰Shot in beautiful Jackson, Wyoming. #wyoming #explorewyoming #glamping #airstream #jacksonhole #productphotography
The ruined Capelo de Sao Bento was built in the 16th century and severely damaged by the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755. 🏚Inside you can still see traces of 500 year old frescoes. ⛪️#portugal #portugaltravel #alentejo #ruins #abandonedplaces #monsaraz #visitportugal #mytinyatlas
The ancient Roman temple at the city center of Évora was built 1200 years before its 13th century cathedral, seen in ghostly silhouette on the right side of this photo. 🏛 The remains of the temple housed a butcher shop from the 14th-19th c. helping to keep it remarkably well-preserved. 🥩 #evora #portugal #portugaltravel #portugalovers #alentejo #ruins #fog #instamood
Back from ten days in Portugal today. 🛬I loved the less-touristed Alentejo region, it’s dotted with picture-perfect medieval villages topped with crumbling castles, all surrounded by a sea of golden wheat fields. 🏰🍷🌾Monsaraz was the best of them. #alentejo #alentejogram #portugal #portugaltravel #mytinyatlas #monsaraz
Lucked out with one of the best sunsets I’ve ever captured while shooting a life-sized sandcastle for Booking.com over the weekend. Sleeps two! #sandcastle #sandcastlehotel #coneyisland #lunapark🎡 #brooklyn #sunset_pics

More burgundy brilliance from @thenewdesignproject.🍷TVs are usually something to avoid in interior photography, but when the design is this good it just works. 📺#recentwork #interiordesign #interiorphotography #brooklyninteriors #burgundy
