“Ruins have always fascinated us with their power to open windows into vanished worlds. In this book, informative prose and evocative photographs show us that the crumbling remains of the Hudson Valley’s past, from 18th-century farmhouses to 20th-century factories, can be just as interesting – and haunting – as those of ancient Egypt and Rome.” (Richard Moe)
“The most beautiful and historical of America’s big waterways, the Hudson River has for almost four centuries reflected the political and economic development of an entire continent. Hudson Valley Ruins tells of the factories, railroad stations, quaint estates, department stores, brickyards and other historic structures near its banks that are now threatened by redevelopment and argues elegantly and persuasively that we need to save them. Bravo.” (Kenneth T. Jackson, Jacques Barzun Professor of History, Columbia University)
