Staten Island’s Sinking Ships

Staten Island’s Sinking Ships
Opacity, a site that explores urban decay, has an incredible collection of photos of the Staten Island Boat Graveyard… “Off the shore of Staten Island New York rests a veritable graveyard of decommissioned, scrapped, and abandoned ships of various sizes, ages, and states of decay. Things are constantly changing here; new boats are brought in and old ones are chopped up or sunk into the muddy banks of the harbor.”
