Seaview, Staten Island

Recommended Posts

The building photos look like old tenements from back in the day. Do you have any story behind them?

 

Oh yeah and I really like the b&w, and especially the third one

Well, all these buildings used to be part of Seaview Hospital in Staten Island. They were used as a tuberculosis ward before the cure was created. After the cure most of the buildings were left because there were no longer patients to fill them. There's ten buildings in total. There's paintball and airsoft courses set up back there so you have to be a little cautious when walking around but its a really cool place to explore.

 

There's some more in this set on my flickr.

No, some people were starting an airsoft match in one of the buildings we were but they were nice enough to come and tell us before they started plus they were playing on the basement and we weren't in there.

too much contrast, balance out your whites and blacks and bring in some tones.
