The Brooklyn Decay Crew took a rare out-of-town trip this morning to Yonkers, just north of the Bronx. We were there to examine the ruins of a large, abandoned New York Central Rail power station: three buildings, connected by catwalks and half-collapsed stairwells. The complex was built in 1906, and abandoned in 1963. The central turbine building was the show-stopper-- it had an almost cathedral-like quality, which is not surprising, since it was designed by Reed & Stem, the same firm that worked on Grand Central Station. Wandering around the rest of the site, Sam and I talked about what a waste it all was-- how such beautiful buildings could be allowed to sit vacant when they could be used for so much more.
