The Edgemere Landfill Trilogy


You may remember photographer Nathan Kensinger from past mention on this blog of his coverage of Fresh Kills and the Hamilton Avenue marine transfer station.  Nathan’s latest project is a three-part series examining the section of the Rockaways (a beachfront neighborhood in Queens) that once housed the Edgemere, America’s longest-running landfill, and remains home to its toxic legacy.
