Walking on the walls of the 1980s NYC subway

This junkyard was filled with derelict and haphazardly piled MTA subway cars, drenched in colorful graffiti, some of the last vestiges of a bygone era for the city. In the mid-'80s, the MTA had gone to war against graffiti, upgrading the act from a nuisance to a crime, and instituting a policy where any car tagged with spray paint was immediately taken out of service and cleaned. The city officially declared victory over train graffiti on May 12, 1989. The Abandoned New York.

How does an island in New York City’s East River go from being notoriously feared, almost 100 years ago, to being completely forgotten about today?

Eerie Photos of North Brother Island, the Last Unknown Place in New York City

That’s the story behind North Brother Island, the subject of photographer Christopher Payne’s new photo book. A 10-minute boat ride from the Bronx’s Barretto Point Park, North Brother Island originally housed Riverside Hospital between the 1880s and 1930s. While in operation, the hospital served hundreds of patients who suffered from extremely communicable diseases, including smallpox, typhus, scarlet fever and even leprosy.

Urban exploration

Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not always the case and is of innocent intention.[1] Urban exploration is also commonly referred to as infiltration, although some people consider infiltration to be more closely associated with the exploration of active or inhabited sites.

It may also be referred to as draining (when exploring drains), urban spelunking, urban rock climbing, urban caving, or building hacking. The nature of this activity presents various risks, including both physical danger and the possibility of arrest and punishment. Targets of exploration[edit] Abandonments[edit] Exploration urbaine.
