Photographer Will Ellis has released his newest collection of photographs from his exploration of New York’s most remote and forgotten places, and his images are breathtaking and haunting. His new book “Abandoned NYC” captures a New York that is quickly disappearing.
Ellis has been faithfully documenting forgotten corners of the city since 2012, and has been sharing his discoveries through his blog abandonedNYC.com. Ellis does his homework on the places he visits and writes extensively about each location’s unique and fascinating history. His shots range from ruins of Coney Island to abandoned schools in Harlem.
Ellis’ new book has 150 color photos of lost places across the five Boroughs, and each location includes detailed information on the history of these forgotten places. “Abandoned NYC” is currently available on his website and Amazon. He will also be having a presentation and book signing at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn on February 18. You can get tickets to this event here.
