Dead Horse Bay is a small body of water within the Brooklyn Marine Park. The area once was home to Barren Island, which was a trash and dead animal dump for Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx. In the 1920’s the island and its trash was buried to create Floyd Bennett Field, New York’s first municipal airport. In the 1950’s, the landfill cap burst, exposing the area to a century’s worth of garbage. You can still find old bottles, shoes and other pieces of the lives of the people who once lived there…

It all seems like a grave yard. We have a similar place in India called Rameshwaram. It was once a busy town and was completely wiped out by a cyclone. Now its just a dead town.

Enjoyed your recipes and snaps. Nice presentation. Really eager to try some of your recipes and share them in my little kitchen cheenachatti. See you some time at Cheenachatti.
