Exploring the Ugly Side of Brighton Beach

New, 5 comments

Brighton Beach isn't all just sandy boardwalk, vodka swigs and wannabe reality stars. Nope, it also has rotting, abandoned and squatter-friendly historic bungalows that give Far Rockaway a run for its money. Urban spelunker Nathan Kensinger's latest photo essay takes us inside some of these run-down relics, a dying breed thanks to years of rampant development and laissez-faire zoning. And arson. We cant forget the arson.
