IN PHOTOS: The Staten Island Boat Graveyard

Perhaps you’ve heard of an elephant graveyard, but how about a boat graveyard? Does such a thing exist? Turns out it does, and New York City has one. Known as 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.
