A small group of us, called Beauty In Decay Project, want to get together this year and photography and do some writeups on derelict, abandoned, and decaying historical and other buildings such as homes, historical locations, businesses, factories, hospitals, and sanitariums before they are torn down and/or nature reclaims them. In order to do so, we need some funding to get a few essential pieces of equipment to make our exploring a little bit easier and make our project come together. We would like to do a couple hundred different locations in the greater NY & PA area in the next couple of years, and then we would like to publish our photographs and documentation in a book and online on a blog as well. We were founded in October of 2015 and currently there are 4 active members, not including myself. There are 10 total members, with a lay member in Buffalo, NY and another lay member in Chicago.
