Farmers Colony

NY Farmers Colony

The New York Farmers Colony has an interesting, sordid history. It began as a poor house, before social security systems were in place. People unable to care for themselves were sent there to do farm labor. The produce of the farm … Continue reading

Power Plant

Power Plant

My last post was a power plant and I’m pretty sure this place is too, though I couldn’t find any history on it. This was a really cool, completely unplanned and unexpected explore. Last week I met someone named Bobby Hicks … Continue reading
