Crumble Town

Spring's arrived in New York, so Scout and I took the ferry out to Staten Island for a day of exploring last Saturday. It was my first time making the ride, which proves the point that no matter how long one sticks around New York, and I've only been here 7 years now, there's always something new to discover. We took the bus out towards the Greenbelt hiking trail and missed the connection bus just as we were getting off the first one. Good thing. We tromped uphill and came across the wreckage of the old Sea View hospital. After crawling through a not very persuasive fence we explored the ruins. It was apocalypse porn on the order of an episode of the Walking Dead. Here's some pictures:


















And in the midst of all of that was this happy guy:

Old Sea View hospital is located at 460 Brielle Ave in Staten Island.
