Well, it seems like there’s a small piece of Detroit within New York City limits.
Photographer Lynn Guarino has photographed the remaining bungalows in Far Rockaway which have been left abandoned and in a state of decay because of changing demographics in the area. The bungalows were reportedly built in the 1940′s to be the vacation houses of upper-class families, but when New York City started building low-income housing in the area, people split and never looked back. Now, many of these houses are left to rot with no prospective buyers lined up.
The photos are shown in an animated GIF (yeah, WTF seriously…), but you get a sense of what’s going on after several loops or so.
