As luck would have it, I was fortunate enough to have access to the Westholm as shot in one of my first posts. This beautiful old hotel was once a four seasons motor lodge and has stood empty since the early 90’s. Most of the rooms are fairly intact; however part of the building is crumbling due to now maintenance and water damage. These are some portraits taken within the hotel.
During the last year, i have been travelling from Brooklyn NY to Upstate NY almost every month. The architecture of the old hotels and mansions is incredible, but unfortunately due to a severely depressed economy many of the most extravagant buildings have been abandoned.
