Bannerman Castle - New York

306 days ago, 208 views
Pollepel Island is a 6.5 acres (26,000 m2) island in the Hudson River in New York. The principal feature on the island is Bannerman’s Castle, an abandoned military surplus warehouse. Pollepel Island has been called many different names, including Pollopel Island, Pollopel’s Island, Bannerman’s Island, and Bannermans’ Island. Pollepel is a Dutch word meaning “(wooden) ladle”, but the Bannerman Castle Trust organization ascribes the name to a folk tale about a young girl named Polly Pell having been stranded on the island.
