Nathan Kensinger explores New York

Dead Horse Bay. Coney Island Creek. The Bronx Swamp. The South Edgemere Wasteland. Names like these have a strange fascination for me, and apparently so they do for the photographer Nathan Kensinger, whose website features “The Abandoned & Industrial Edges of New York City.”

I went to Red Hook recently for the first time, and while poking around the old brick warehouses by the waterfront, I noticed I was on the corner of Beard Street. Odd name, I thought. A few days later I came across Kensinger’s essay on Beard Street, which he calls “my favorite street in Brooklyn.” I was sorry not to have seen it before the Todd Shipyard was dismantled to make room for the new Ikea superstore.
