Just real fast, I have a two page interview up with The LA Times. Don’t except any fart jokes, I answered these questions like a grown up. Also I’ll be doing slides and reading old diaries for Animal Farm shows at the Legion Bar on December 4th with Julia Fierro, Rebecca Schiff and the Comics Curmudgeon’s Josh Fruhlinger.
Now here’s a scant few photos of places I’ve been in the last few months because I feel bad about not posting anything. Kidding, who gives a shit about the internet? You might have seen some of these on flickr but I assume no one uses flickr except me anymore. These are the more well known places I’ve explored recently, I’m saving the less popular ones for another project. Also, no, I will not tell you how to get to these places, you just have to use the internet like I did.
The main indoor swimming pool
Fire pit in an ice skating lodge
Foliage along the side of the indoor pool
Abandoned cement mill by the (removed) old Penny Bridge train stop for the Long Island Railroad
Farm Colony in Staten Island
Yonkers Power Station (now being renovated for something terrible I’m sure)
The Staten Island Shipyard. Probably the most popular and easily accesible ruins in NYC
Letchworth Village for the “crippled and feeble minded,” as the old pamphlets said.
An attic in an somewhat recently abandoned boarding house in the Catskills
The Gates of Hell in New Jersey, which we couldn’t get into due to flooding
Greystone Psychiatric Hospital
Beauty parlor chair
Electric stuff I dont know anything about except that it looks cool. And we got there by going in…
…the underground tunnels.
Medical chair in the basement
The most deteriorated patient wards
Outside of the Greystone hospital, facing the back of the Kirkbride building
And last but not least, me and Jen Phippen, with whom I do most of my exploring because she’s up for anything but also stops me from doing dangerous stuff that I want to do SO BAD. That’s the best kind of exploring buddy.
