NYC's borough of Queens is a trove of abandoned places. From psychiatric hospitals and rail lines, to army forts, there's no shortage of places to explore.
An old bathhouse on Huron Street in Greenpoint gives us a glimpse into life before indoor plumbing was widely available in NYC.
On my way to the Graey Spring/Summer 2011 runway show yesterday, I came across this public bath house behind some scaffolding. With large arched windows, multicolor brick and limestone construction, a pedimented doorway and gargoyles, this building is strongly reminiscent of municipal architecture from the early 20th century.
