deejayforte I don't consider myself a photographer, I'm not a scientist, I never went to film school, and whilst one of my degrees is in historyโ€” I'm not a historian. But these are all things I'm very enthusiastic about because I have the passion to do so, I never want to stop learning. If you want something bad enough, you make the continued effort to amalgamate yourself and surround your life with it.

deejayforte โš› First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day is an annual worldwide event to demonstrate the support for environmental protection. It was directly influenced by Apollo 8 astronaut William Anders' "Earthrise" photo, taken in 1968. National Geographic photographer Galen Rowell declared it "the most influential environmental photograph ever taken." #science #tocatchasunset #earthday2015 #earthrightnow 4d

deejayforte You learn a lot about someone when the moment you very first meet, they give you a big hug without hesitation. Thank you for everything @bebedowntown, it was really nice spending the day with you.

My science, where to begin? I've known Carlos ("Mono" @monodelespacio) for several years through @Instagramโ€” having been introduced through our mutual appreciation for urban exploring. When he told me he was visiting this week from Guatemala, not only did I want to meet and hangout as much as I could, but actually go urban exploring with one another! After this weekend, I'm grateful to know he's someone I can genuinely count on.

deejayforte In 1890, the original building was expanded with multiple additions increasing the number of prison cells up to 300. The building was also updated to include running water and toilet facilities in each cell.

In a somewhat acerbic twist, after it was abandoned in 1989, the Essex County Prison became a haven for homeless drug addicts, many of whom currently still live in the begrimed and dilapidated cells.

deejayforte Constructed for $30,000 in 1837 and designed by architect John Haviland (designer of Eastern State Penitentiary,) Essex County Prison is a National Historic Landmark and former county prison located in Essex County, New Jersey. Housing 300 prison cells, the facility operated from 1837 until its closure in 1970, when it was converted into the headquarters for the Essex County Bureau of Narcotics until its abandonment in 1989. 2w
  •   amybaltes @crobb7 check out this page, everything's pretty sweet on it 2w
  •   juliamegs Ahh this looks so creepy cool! We don't typically have abandoned structures like this here in SoCal so to me it's fascinating 2w
  •   juliamegs Usually it's not long after something's abandoned that someone else comes along to turn it into something new, I mean 2w
  •   deejayforte @dianawfu Thanks Diana! Oh! Definitely :) We just need the Governor 2w
  •   deejayforte @amybaltes oh wow! Thank you for that nice compliment 2w
  •   deejayforte @juliamegs It was so creepy BUT fascinating! I've beer seen an abandoned prison before, I was loving every minute of it. You know, NYC has something similarโ€” abandoned buildings don't stay that way for very long, we usually have travel outside of the city if we want to explore anything. But there are a few gems hidden about ^_^ 2w

deejayforte Yesterday I traveled to three separate locations (an abandoned hospital, art warehouse and prison) within the Tri-State area. I look forward to sharing the rich history of these facilities to all of you.
