Haunting Photos Capture the Decaying Ruins of New York's Abandoned Buildings

From Manhattan and Brooklyn's trendiest neighborhoods to the far-flung edges of the outer boroughs, photographer Will Ellis (previously) has spent the last three years documenting New York’s abandoned places. His curiosity with urban decay has turned into an amazing blog aptly titled, "AbandonedNYC", where you’ll find a stunning selection of his incredible photographs. "I can’t claim that my primary intention is to document these structures before they’re gone as an act of preservation." He explains, "But I am hoping to preserve the belief that there is still weirdness, wildness, and mystery in the world, even in an increasingly sanitized city like New York." Ellis has also recently published an amazing book based on his blog of the same name.
