6. Mariner’s Marsh

Staten Island’s Mariner’s Marsh is one of New York City’s creepiest locations. The abandoned site was once a shipyard that produced warships, and prior to that it was Milliken Brother’s Structural Iron Works.

The marsh is overtaken with freshwater ponds, and is littered with abandoned cars, boat hulls, and disintegrating piers that serve as a vague reminder of what the site once was.

Mariner’s Marsh has remained vacant for an environmental investigation since 2006.
