UrbEx: Glenwood Power Station

A look inside the abandoned Glenwood Power Station of the defunct New York Central Railroad. Located in Yonkers, NY along the Hudson River this cavernous edifice is a silent reminder of the power that the railroads once held over 100 years ago. Built to provide electricity to the newly electrified lines running from New York to upstate and beyond, the power station was a marvel of engineering of its day. When municipal power became a cheaper and reliable alternative the plant was shut down. The large spaces are now well traveled by urban explorers, graffiti artists, performance artists, or those just looking to get away from the public eye for a time.
