In the 1960’s, Robert Moses declared the part of Far Rockaway known as Arverne a slum and had some 300 homes razed. Unlike other urban renewal programs, nothing happened here and the land sits vacant and is slowly being reclaimed by mother nature. Needless to say there isn’t much to see here so this is a very short photo journal, hardly urban exploration, but interesting none the less.
