I don't know if this is part of that or not, but I lived on Ridgewood Av, off of Arthur Kill rd. My brothers and I used to explore in the swamp/woods around Richmond Av way back when. We found some really old silos made of brick, it was like something from another world-all overgrown, crumbling and in the middle of nowhere. I asked my grandmother and she said when she was young there were farms there. It is amazing how much that area has changed-now it is totally overbuilt, overstuffed and dirty.
