There are over nearly five hundred structures and over seven hundred and fifty photos shown on this site, with new ones added when possible. Many of the photos are from different aspects and angles when possible, and some have interior shots if permission from the owner is given (or the property is on public property). Most shots are quick photos taken to display, chronicle, and archive the abandoned buildings in New York State. If you are looking for more artistic photos you can check out the Artwork Page. Many times visitors to the site and guest photographers will send photos to be included, and many amazing and unique structures have been found.
We consider an 'abandoned building' one that has not been inhabited or utilized for quite some time and is presently not in use when the photo is taken - though later some of the buildings may be demolished, rebuilt, re-used or re-tasked. The photos presented here are for your entertainment, as well as to chronicle urban decay for historical purposes.
If you know of an abandoned building or structure or have a photograph not shown on these pages, please send us an e-mail. We do have a large list of suggestions from you; the visitors to this site, that we have yet to photograph. And we welcome more.
You can send us any comments on any of the photos here via the comment buttons, and they will be added to the relevant photo (please let us know if the comment you send is not meant to be posted publicly).
Some of the photos on these pages were shot by the webmaster, others were photographed by guest photographers while some photos were sent to the website anonymously.
