abandoned rail car on the Putnam Line, Bronx.
Apologize for the crappy quality. I need to start carrying my good camera again.
Found this gem inside of a utility mechanism accidentally opened by the storm.
Welcome, Mayor DeBlasio.
Don’t disappoint us.

Van Cortlandt Revisited, October 2013.
I am in love with 5 pointz.
reblogging my 5-Pointz photoset, since, it is now a relic of the past.
I apologize for my lack of content. I’ve been trying to upload some Van Cortlandt Park pictures for the longest but every time it takes so damn long to upload. I’ll try to get some fresh stuff soon.
In the meantime, here’s a look back at some photos I took of 5-Pointz, a once famous graffiti Mecca that is now painted white, set to be demolished and turned into condominiums.
In New York, it’s illegal to destroy art, but lawyers of the developers argue that graffiti isn’t art.
Can you honestly tell me right now th at none of this is art?
We Can Hitch A Ride to Rockaway Beach!
So I finally found the abandoned tracks of Long Island Rail Road’s Rockaway Beach Branch. My friends have long told me tales of this place, but between work and school, I never had the time. I got to go yesterday by taking a lengthy J train ride to Woodhaven Boulevard.
I chose to catch the branch by way of Forest Park, this way, I wouldn’t be trespassing on any property. However, my partner and I found ourselves unable to get on the tracks due to an abundance of stubborn bugs, steep inclines, and poison ivy. This is definitely a winter expedition.
Many of the rails are still intact, but the most interesting part is how many people have NO idea that this is here. The only acknowledgement is a small sign on a fence, put up by the Parks Department, that reads “Danger: Do Not Enter.”
But even if you don’t enter, it’s certainly visible.
