Abandoned Industries of New York City is a journey through the decaying ruins of the city's forgotten past. Through clandestine photographs and in-depth research, Joseph Anastasio reveals the untold stories of New York City's former industrial glory. These chronicles range from the factory that seemed to keep its entire neighborhood employed, to the individual lives of those who were closely linked to these locations. These characters range from every imaginable background: from the widow of a Titanic victim who amassed a fortune from selling lifeboats, to the cosmetics entrepreneur whose empire slipped away.

This untold history uncovers unexpected tales that have been paved over and lost through New York's endless, unforgiving cycle of urban renewal and reinvention. This book will appeal to anyone who loves a good adventure highlighted by the unexpected and unseen, as told by the foremost authority on all things abandoned in NYC.
