Take a journey through some of New York's abandoned sites and see the soul of what once was. The elegant architecture of Roosevelt Island's Smallpox Memorial Hospital accepts the beautiful embrace of wild vines, while the desolation and debris of Dead Horse Bay reveals a cautionary statement about our environment. Exploring the Catskill Old Game Farm allows one to envision the menagerie of wild animals and the glee of children running through its rolling hills. The halls of the Ellis Island Hospital still hold the spirits of optimistic immigrants in search of the American dream. The majesty of Bannerman's Castle still stands guard on the Hudson River. Discover the strategic importance of the secret M42 site three hundred feet below Grand Central Terminal. The few remnants of the 1964 World's Fair in Corona Park still reflect the optimism of this exhibition. Forgotten sites stir the imagination and put forth the realization that although everything is finite, history is not.
