Allentown Union School

This is an abandoned school in the center of the small community of Allentown, New York. Allentown was once an oil boom town once containing multiple hotels and stores with a train that went through the town. Today, woods now cover the oil fields and the school is just a empty monument to a era of the town’s past success. The beauty and strength of this school is emence. Even though time has battered its structure and broken its windows, its still stands tall and proud. I shot and edited this Easter weekend 2012. The music is composed specifically for this piece and was done by the very talented Ron Passaro.
