States of DecayBook - 2013
"A new breed of urban adventurers take a savage ride through the hidden story of America's North East. Join us as we follow two explorers' journey through derelict spaces. From New York City to the infamous Rust Belt, once home to America's heavy industry, 'States of Decay' brings you a glimpse of the broken, the doomed, the entropic dreamlands on the flipside of the silver dollar coin. The morbid counterparts to the modern America that pumps greenbacks from its corporate epicentres though its far reaching veins, nurturing the glossy surfaces. Peer into the recent past as dark histories unfold and their stories are told. Journey into atmospheric asylums, derelict houses of worship, forgotten educational institutions, industrial monoliths, vacant hotels, desolate transport hubs, and other ruins of the 20th century. See them as they stand today. Travel back in time and immerse yourself in the shadows of their past"--Introduction.
