Queens: Where Your Boats, Bottles and Creepy Doll Heads Wind Up

New, 2 comments

Urban explorer Nathan Kensinger just posted the third installment of his photo essays exploring the isolated Edgemere section of the Rockaways on Queens' Jamaica Bay waterfront. In this final part of the series, Kensinger looks at the Edgemere Landfill, once a huge garbage dump and now a remedied Superfund site that's part of a 253-acre park. Based on what the photographer found, we wouldn't recommend grabbing the kids for a picnic on the beach. Click through for more photos, but check out "Bottle Beach," which reminds us of the opening credits sequence of Boardwalk Empire, after the jump.
