16-10-02 WPC- Nostalgia_Hippie Edition

This week’s challenge is nostalgia.  In my experience, once you are past about age 8 the choices are limitless. I was photographing some third grade students the other day and one said to another: “Remember when we were little kids we used to…”

I went to Yonkers last week to revisit the Glenwood Power Station. The construction/destruction of this most beautiful ruin seems to have slowed or stopped. The visit was nostalgic as it is one of the first places outside of NYC proper I visited when I first started The Quotidian Hudson. Along with the Little Red Lighthouse it truly has my heart.

After visiting it I was walking the Yonkers waterfront and came across the subject of today’s photo.  It brought back 1968 with a vengeance…
