Staten Odd-land: Vistas of destruction as U.S. Gypsum building is demolished (commentary)

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Buildings on the sprawling site in New Brighton that once housed the U.S. Gypsum Plant continue to come down. I visited the site a number of times while some recent demolition was going on. Each visit revealed a new vista of destruction amid ever-increasing piles of discarded industrial debris and gigantic machine parts.
