Abandoned house (Castleton-on-Hudson, NY) – March 2012


I got used to seeing this house in the downtown of our village. Like too many structures – some of which are still with us – it was uninhabited. One afternoon two years later, it was taken down by a demolition crew in the span of a couple hours. My mother-in-law told me the couple that occupied the house decades past would have been mortified to see it abandoned. It looked like the structure was in decent shape.
