Decrepitude of the Southern Tier is an ongoing photographic project dedicated to documenting the decline of one of the most economically depressed regions in the northeastern United States.
Decrepitude of the Southern Tier
Decrepitude of the Southern Tier was a project undertaken while the editor of Sobriquet Magazine lived and worked in Broome, Chemung, Tompkins, and Steuben Counties in southern New York state during the late 2000s. While we are no longer actively publishing material or seeking contributions to the project, we will continue to maintain this web presence both out of our own dedication to the project as well as for the benefit of those individuals and institutions who have enjoyed visiting the site over the years. That said, if you would like to contribute new images to add to this collection, please reach out to us. We would love to hear from you!
