>>> Staten Island Boat Graveyard

It seems like many of us are attracted to boats at the sad ends of their lives. Wrecks, abandoned hulls, whatever. Urban exploration has grown more popular, or at least with the Internet its easier to share these intrepid adventurers’ travels.

This photo collection is a great set of pictures of a bunch of early 20th century boats that are way past their glory days.

Traversing through the rusted hulks of these ships was a pretty incredible experience! The weather was great and the water was calm (although a little stinky, there is a lot of polluted muck in the harbor). I have seen this place from the shore once before, and it is nothing compared to being right in there… the ships themselves are in terrible shape structurally, but I would’ve liked to climb around a lot more if I had more time over there!

This was another nice break from the hospitals, and completely different… I like how these photos came out and enjoyed taking them.
