‘Jumping Jack’ Power Plant

This abandoned power plant is tucked away along the Brooklyn waterfront. Dilapidated and looking as though it could crumble into itself at any moment, it stands like a ghostly reminder of the area’s industrial past.

Not much is known about the decaying structure, beyond the fact that it was once either a power plant or pump house. Old papers found inside have led some to speculate that the plant was used up until the 1960s.
