Can you believe that there’s a graveyard for abandoned ships in New York City? It’s true!
It is the Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard located on the shore of Staten Island. It is named after Arthur Kill, the body of water separating Staten Island from New Jersey.
The slow creep of the camera reveals the rusted ships littered with debris, in various states of sunkenness. At one point, a modern, sea-worthy boat glides past the graveyard, going about its business.
It was once a part of a scrapyard in the years following World War II. The scrapyard began to purchase old ships to strip them for parts, but it couldn’t keep up with the number of ships. And as time went on, the old vessels fell into disrepair and were abandoned. It’s just like that scene from The Little Mermaid, minus the sharks.
