The Exploration Of Old Lodge

  • April 19, 2011
Front Outside View
Old Lodge is a 10,000 square-foot building built circa 1890, built in Tomkins Cove, New York. Over the years it was used both as a hotel, and private residence. There are unconfirmed reports that the building was used as a camp for children. Years of neglect and decay have left it as a ‘shell’ of a building, and as such it has been formally condemned and entry to the building is strongly discouraged and extremely dangerous.
While little is known about this location, the one thing that I know for sure is that this was perhaps the most dangerous and unstable locations I have photographed so far. I must insist that nobody else attempt to enter this building for any purpose; the entire structure is completely unstable and the floors have hidden soft spots everywhere from years of water damage.

      The misses informed me that sometimes ‘freaky crazy psycho killer people’ live in places like this.

      [I will refrain from posting something sarcastic as a response.]

    I love the headmaster’s house. Did you get around to get photos of the other sides? Glad you got out ok when it was that unstable.

      I wanted to get shots of all the out-buildings, but the place was literally waiting for the right gust of wind to take it down like a house of cards. Accordingly, it was truly a race against time and my own safety, which was literally hanging in the balance. This was by far the most risky and dangerous project I’ve ever taken on.
