Will Ellis of AbandonedNYC Talks With Vin Forte About Abandoned SI Buildings


This week’s episode of Vin Forte’s ‘Any Time’ podcast features an interview with photographer Will Ellis of Abandoned NYC, a blog where Ellis searches out the “weirdness, wildness, and mystery” of New York City. The urban explorer often times finds himself on our little island, because we have many interesting abandoned properties upon our shores. In the episode, Will and Vin discuss Staten Island’s abandoned Farm Colony, Will encountering a goat on Arthur Kill Road, and more.
