Bannerman Castle Ruins

Took a recent trip up the Hudson River to Bannerman Castle & Arsenal, built at the turn of the century. 
You can read more about it here and see some older images here

It was a fun day with a group of photography friends and I learned some local history. 
I had never heard of this arsenal or this island,  Pollepel Island, a 6.5 acre island off the shore of the Hudson River Valley. 
Check it out and visit, before the ruins fall into the river, never to be seen again!
