Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse Collapse Zone

May 13th, 2006 by

I remember 2004. It was springtime, and A & P were in town once again. These guys are a little more on the daring side, and they hadn't seen the insanity that was the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouses just yet, so off we went.

We started on the south side of the facility and worked our way northward and upward, climbing the most deformed stairs, skywalks and rooftops we could find. Along the way we ran into Ra, the squatter who's turf these buildings was. We ended the night hanging out with him at the top of a building which had just about entirely collapsed. The only way to get to this spot was to go through a different building and come out on a rusted fire escape to walk into the next door where you could stand and stare down at oblivion itself.
