The students in Ethnoarchaeology of Cities have recently identified a number of "ruins" (although we did not at the outset define a ruin). Here are a few of their photographs.

This "ruin" at 96th St and Amsterdam represents the conversion of an elegant structure (bank?) to a pharmacy.

This is an exposed pipe (water?, sewer?) on East 20th St.

And this is a building with the upper storeys blocked while the ground floor is still in use on 125th St.

And here is a ?fountain for horses or a washbasin? at 155th

This is another factory, but in Providence RI
