I was clued in on the existence of this place via a photograph published on Instagram by Brooklyn photographer Sam Horine who happens to be a regular explorer of forgotten, abandoned and under-appreciated places either in New York or wherever he happens to find himself traveling.
I ventured out on my own for this visit under ridiculously cold weather which would have discouraged any friend to come tag along with the intentions to take a few portraits around the unoccupied and grungy setting.
We no longer live anywhere close to Bushwick and one of the disheartening aspects of this is how quickly I'm uncovering places around the neighborhood that I was completely unaware of until we moved. The upside is that I have more of a reason to pay a visit.
Here's the iPhone version which was shared on Instagram.
