Author, documentary filmmaker, and photographer John Lazzaro has a passion for abandoned sites in the Empire Site. Through his photography, he puts their individual stories in the larger context of New York’s historical legacy. Whether near his home on Long Island or deep within New York City, Lazzaro has a mission: capture vanishing architecture throughout the United States.
