Looks pretty much like it did 20 years ago. I hope restoration can take place. Sure would be worth it. Very good photographs by the way!

I'm very glad you are capturing these and getting such great photos.
I so wish my father-in-law who is 91 still had his vision. As I mentioned before, "he graduated from UC Berkley in 1942. Commissioned as an Ensign, USNR, in 1941, he completed his studies in uniform under the wartime directives of those years. He was made instructor in the Gyro Compass School, Brooklyn Navy Yard, and taught courses there throughout 1943." I know he used to escort a high ranking officer's daughter.

Amazing; places like this make me want to investigate, find out about the lives that lived there, worked there. How come it was left to go to wreck and ruin?

I wonder why someone doesn't restore these places or tear them down? They look like they were really great places in their heyday!

Those houses are ghostly but I love all the old iron work on gates etc. What a pity these beautiful place are so abandoned. Property is so scarce one would think that these stands would be bought and something new built on them.
