Soundscape: Dead Horse Bay
Dead Horse Bay (2:08) by Nerina Penzhorn. "Located on the southwest shore of what used to be Barren Island, Dead Horse Bay’s name dates to the mid-19th century when the area was home to dozens of horse-rendering plants. By the 1920s, most of the plants were gone, and the city had begun the process of connecting Barren Island to the mainland using sand, coal and garbage as landfill. Today the landfill is slowly eroding, releasing 100-year old garbage onto the beach." Best enjoyed with headphones. Source: Vimeo
