These are photos taken during a tour of the Greystone property lead by the Roebling Chapter of the Society for Industrial Archaeology. The tour included around some of the main building, various outbuildings, and the former gas plant. Unfortunately, the main building and surrounding buildings have since been torn down (October 2015).
These are before and after photos after demolition occurred of gas storage structures on the Central Hudson property along the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, NY. The first two photos show the site in 2012, and the third photo shows the site in 2015. This is the area bordered on the north by Dutchess Avenue and on the east by North Water Street.

The Jackson House was located at the southwest quadrant of the intersection of Main Street and Jackson Street in Fishkill, NY. The house was a nineteenth century home of Dutchess County Judge Joseph I. Jackson and part of the Village of Fishkill National Register Historic District. For a time the building served as an office for Mid-Hudson Medical Group (I remember going to it as a child!).
A rear addition to the building was demolished some time between 2011 and 2013, and then the rest of the historic structure was demolished in December 2013. These pictures depict the house in March 2011, March 2013, and then its demolition.

A fire occurred in March 2012 to a house on Church Street near South Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie, NY. The heat from the fire affected the vinyl siding of the houses nearby. Obviously, the house was completely demolished following the fire. The adjacent houses were repaired.
The building was closed when I photographed it in March 2013, and it was demolished relatively soon afterwards. The signage indicated it was a florist, but the interior also contained framing materials. It was located on South Road/Route 9 in Poughkeepsie at 41.648949, -73.926729.

The house was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century and the barn was over 50 years old. These buildings were part of a farm that previously operated at the property at least until the 1950s. The house had been unoccupied for approximately 20 years. In 2010 the barn was being utilized by the owners of the property, the Masonic Fellowship of Newburgh.
Some time after 2010, the structures were razed. The property is now the Mason’s Ridge Apartments.

These residences/cottages were constructed in the 1940s and 1950s. The property was originally owned by the Musillo family, which is the name of the road now. A few more buildings were originally on this property (as evidenced by the old sketch of the property). These properties were photographed in 2010; by 2012, they were completely demolished.
