Fascinating, Evocative New Images of New York’s Abandoned Spaces

A few months ago, we ran some images from NYC photographer Will Ellis’s blog Abandoned NYC, which has for the last few years documented the corners of the city you never see — abandoned buildings, inaccessible islands, and various other fascinatingly atmospheric locales. Happily, Ellis has landed a book deal for his photos — Abandoned NYC, the book, is out this week and available here. (It’ll also be in stores and available via online retailers.) To celebrate, Ellis was kind enough to share a few previously unseen images with us — click through to check them out.
