I traveled up to Bannerman Island on New York’s Hudson River this weekend. This 90-minute drive and then a 30-minute boat ride delivers you to a an island with the ruins of a castle that held a munitions arsenal and the residence of Francis Bannerman, which is situated on the highest elevation of the island.
Bannerman bought the island (also known as Pollepel Island on most maps) to house his ever-growing stock of government surplus munitions and equipment bought after the Civil and Spanish-American wars. More info on the history of Bannerman Island and tour info can be found here.
Here are several images I shot on the island:
