I visited FORT HANCOCK last week. Located at Sandy Hook, NJ and part of the Gateway National Park the fort has many old abandoned buildings that offer a treasure trove of photo possibilities.
This building had large garage doors so I'm assuming it was for washing vehicles although I did a kick out of picturing rows and rows of washing machines and dryers in there.
Further down the road I found a small building that was really nothing much to look at, just a small dilapidated structure that might have been a home for the lowest rank soldier on the base.
I was about to pass it by when a strange yet wonderful sound came from one of the windows ...
That stretch of rusted wire was moving in the wind and the medallion type object at the end of it was making a weak whistling sound.
I like to think that as it fell apart the little building decided to decorate itself and create a way to capture the attention of someone like me.
I'll be posting more shots from the fort and the area around it and Sandy Hook Lighthouse.
