Just off Route 9 in Yonkers, a half-hour drive north of New York City, the Boyce Thompson Institute is an abandoned agricultural institute where the plants have gone wild. The institute was founded by mining magnate Boyce Thompson and opened its doors in 1924 with the goal of studying plants - abandoned in 1978.
Abandoned No information on this old stairway other than it being old and abandoned. Clicked on and I found this.....Strolling through the countryside of Scotland you expect to see the ruins of an ancient castle or two - the hillsides are full of them. However, tucked away in the woods outside Cardross lies an entirely different kind of relic.
