The Splendid Decay of Hunter’s Point Shipyard and Moonlight on the Bay

Hunters Point Naval Shipyard is a prime piece of land. Long ago abandoned by the Navy, barracks there were converted for use as artist’s studios. Now the barracks are crumbling, and are due to be bulldozed and replaced by housing. A very complicated deal was worked out, involving the huge Lennar corporation, the removal of tons of toxic waste, many benefits for the surrounding community, etc. It will be awhile before anything actually gets built.I took these shots several months ago. Not sure if this building is still there.
