Abandoned Shell station, Western Ave, Albany, NY. Across from the Hebrew Cemetery in which my great-great Uncle Bill and Aunt Hattie lie. Bill was a millionaire in the 1950s. Standard Furniture, 15 stores. "But the sons got MBAs, and ran it into the ground," my father says. "Or maybe it was the Chinese." (As I took this picture a bro leaned out of a black pickup and yelled "There ain't nothing there!")
