This is a shot of an empty lot at a Chrysler dealership in Hyde Park, NY that went out of business some time ago. There were a lot of "for rent" signs and empty store fronts in this small town and if it hasn't t so cold I would have tried to document more the town's decline. It's really too bad since Hyde Park seems to have been a charming little town. The surroundings are still spectacular and there are some amazing views of the Hudson nearby. The FDR Presidential Library is nearby and both the Roosevelts and the Vanderbilts had homes nearby.
