St. Mary’s Yonkers – Side Chapel

This is the side chapel of  Immaculate Conception Church (also known as St. Mary’s) in Yonkers, New York. Once again, I am grateful to Msgr. Hugh J. Corrigan for allowing me full access throughout this magnificent building while it was otherwise closed to the public. You can see the baptistery to the left, a statue of Jesus […]

If These Walls Could Stand

The entrance to this building is intact, including an elevator of some interest, but once you walk to the end of the foyer, you come upon this vista. Most of the building is just gone, having collapsed at some uncertain earlier date, which of course makes venturing into other buildings at the location rather unnerving..

Paper Trail

I’m pretty much done with images from the first building we explored at this location, and the second building looked much like the first. So, I am going to skip ahead to the third building, which was the most interesting, and I will mix in the occasional shot from the second building as I go […]

New York City Skyline From Greenpoint

This view is from a small landing area next to a not-yet-opened park in Greenpoint called Transmitter Park. I like the unusual view of the NYC skyline, with the midtown skyscrapers to the right, an unusual long cluster of low slung apartment buildings in the middle, and finally the  power plant in the left foreground.

Food Service Equipment – by The National

When you walk through Old City Philadelphia, you expect to see great buildings that are roughly 200 years old, and there are plenty of those. The more recent buildings that are mixed in are generally much less exciting. I was surprised, then, to stumble upon this beauty, of what appears to be mid-20th century vintage. […]
