On Wednesday, May 1 at 7:30PM, Photographer & Author, Rob Yasinsac, will present a multi-media lecture on “Hudson Valley Ruins – Forgotten Landmarks of an American Landscape”, in the Nature Center at Croton Point Park. Admission is FREE and open to the public, with a potluck supper at 6:30PM.
Map & Directions to the Nature Center
In an effort to raise awareness for the plight of neglected historic sites, Hudson Valley Ruins offers a long overdue glimpse at some of the region’s forgotten cultural treasures. Many of these buildings are listed on the National Register of Historical Places, and a few are even National Historical Landmarks. But in spite of their significance, these structures have been allowed to decay, and in some cases, to disappear altogether. In addition to great river estates, this presentation profiles sites more meaningful to everyday life in the Valley: Churches and hotels, commercial and civic buildings, mills and train stations.
Rob Yasinsac has been photographing the Hudson Valley since 1994. His first book, Briarcliff Lodge, was published in 2004 by Arcadia as part of its “Images of America” series. Hudson Valley Ruins, co-authored with Thomas Rinaldi, was published in September 2006 by the University Press of New England.
The third annual Shattemuc PleinAir Paintout will be held this year on September 21.
