Staten Island ship graveyard
Find a clandestine way in. Avoid getting half your thigh sucked down by mucky sand. Get covered in mud. Clamber over rotting beams covered with slimy algae. Avoid rusty nails and weak boards. Ignore the rain. Relish the briny air. See and feel the place where New York’s tugboats, barges, and ships once came to slowly give themselves over to the elements.
If you go anywhere in the 5 boroughs of NYC that is so far off the beaten path that it feels rural, there’s a good chance that it’s a special place.
