6. NYC’s Last Remaining Commercial Marine Salvage Yard: Staten Island Boat Graveyard
Known as the Donjon Iron and Metal Scrap Processing Facility, the Witte Marine Scrap Yard, the Arthur Kill Boat Yard, or simply the “Staten Island Boat Graveyard,” the city’s only remaining commercial marine salvage yard is located in Rossville, Staten Island. The site is a popular one amongst urban explorers, but the no trespassing and beware of dog signage, along with the marshy terrain make it quite the challenge by foot. Another, more effective way to see the boatyard is by kayak.
