Long Island is a dynamic place that is steeped in history, but also in progress. Over the centuries, changing times have left many places behind, trapped in a limbo between past and future.
This book is a visual journey that explores everything from the haunting remains of grand old Gold Coast estates, to the remnants of a once-thriving military and industrial presence, to a dead mall awaiting a revival.
The abandoned images in this book are frozen moments in time along a path that will either lead to outright demolition, to further decay and decrepitude, or to reuse and rebirth.
