Bryan Sansivero – Abandoned New York Mansion

Bryan Sansivero captures an abandoned lavish mansion with a secret past

Just outside New York City, there’s a sprawling, 57-room mansion sitting on 6 acres and equipped with a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, two bars, a library, opulent interiors, with spiral staircases and chandeliers. It is also entirely abandoned. Built in the late 1930s and last inhabited in the 1970s, the neglect is allegedly down to an owner who would buy lavish mansions and leave them to rot. While the building itself is in need of repairs, the collections within it remain untouched and have been beautifully captured by photographer Bryan Sansivero – there are dolls, old photographs, plastic flowers, paintings and two pianos, stark reminders of a privileged life from the past. Fascinating stuff! 🙂
