Showering red-hot coke fresh from the furnaces near the Coal Tower (in the back) was the Quenching Tower’s duty (front).
The parking lot is in better condition than most of the complex. The left building is the lab.
Looking from abandoned to active. The end of Dock 6 often has a crane and some shacks on it, as the chutes aren’t used anymore. Instead, conveyors are installed on the land-side of the dock that fill docked vessels, making the end of the dock little more than a breakwater and a place to park repair and recovery equipment.
The laundry building, where many of the tunnels came to an end. It looks very East Coast industrial to me.

A 15-frame long exposure panorama, taken shortly before power to the complex was cut.
The two antennae are retracted–the position they would be in if the base was under attack.
If it wasn’t for the humming and crackling of the wires, I could believe I had arrived to a post apocalyptic landscape.
If you look close you can see a figure on the water tower.
