"Turnstiles, Hinchcliffe Stadium," Paterson

At one time, fans passed through these lanes on their way into Hinchcliffe Stadium. The entrances are now gated, the walls covered in graffiti, the concrete steps on which the bleachers rest cracked with holes and gullies through which trees have been growing for years. It's another crumbling relic of Paterson, hard by the Great Falls, just like the abandoned factories and mills that line the Passaic River of this once-pivotal industrial city.
