“How could you allow this prolonged death?” said the gull.
And as much evidence as you may have that I’m fascinated by ruins, I’m with the gull on this one.
It’s painful to watch this agony, especially as the sequence of links following from the first one above shows how spectacular this one once was.
Get it over already.
I’ve taken the following photos from the following books, which I own. If you’re interested in the sixth boro past, you should own them too.
Thomas R. Flagg . . . New York Harbor Railroads, vol 2
Here was the interior before it was converted to a restaurant.
And the engine room.
Raymond J. Baxter and Arthur G. Adams . . . Railroad Ferries of the Hudson
The two books I cite are certainly a worthwhile purchase for anyone who looks at today’s sixth boro watersides and imagines the past.
