Dead Horse Bay occupies a special place in the heart of New York City's urban explorers, or really, anyone with eyes who enjoys sifting through 19th-century industrial detritus that has growths of various kinds sprouting from it. So called because glue factories that once hulked nearby discarded the source of their product there, the litter-strewn enclave is tucked within a curving spit of land to the west of Floyd Bennett Field. First spotted by Animal NY, filmmaker Justin Brooks used a "pocket cinema camera" to capture a gloomy day in the life of what is probably a haunted pocket of the city. At the very least, it's pretty darn dirty.
