  • More About This Book
Long Island is a dynamic place that is steeped in history, but also in progress. Over the centuries, changing times have left many places behind, trapped in a limbo between past and future. This book is a visual journey that explores everything from the haunting remains of grand old Gold Coast estates, to the remnants of a once-thriving military and industrial presence, to a dead mall awaiting a revival. The abandoned images in this book are frozen moments in time along a path that will either lead to outright demolition, to further decay and decrepitude, or to reuse and rebirth.

RICHARD PANCHYK knew he wanted to be a writer by the time he was seven years old. He sold his first “book,” a four-page handwritten trivia booklet written on a folded piece of loose-leaf paper in runny blue ballpoint pen, to a third-grade classmate for a nickel. A native of Elmhurst, Queens, Richard attended Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, where a class on the fascinating history of New York ignited his interest in the area. He has published a total of thirty-six books, including nine titles on New York City and nine on Long Island.
